Carlsen should do better

After three rounds in the first leg of the Linares-Morelia tournament (the most powerful chess tournament of this year), the Norwegian wonderkid is not yet shining. Standings and results so far can be seen here (with at least one mistake on the site: Topalov's total number of points is 2.5, after 2 victories and 1 draw, and not 2.0). Obviously I still hope Carlsen will repeat what he did at Wijk aan Zee: anything is still possible, theoretically. Meanwhile, however, Topalov seems to be in an excellent shape. You can replay for instance his game won against Ivanchuk.
