Why weren’t you invited to the dinner that Jorge gave for Vishy st Hacienda los Morales?
Anand is now the undisputed world chess champion. That designation is true. Kramnik himself set this in motion by contract! Kramnik also gets to challenge Anand for that title sometime next year in a match.
Botvinnik won his first title in a tournamant. Defending it in matches, both winning, losing, and drawing them, until he retired in 1963 after his match defeat by Petrosian.
So even history, has a president for winning the title in a tournamant format. This time with the defending champion playing also.
Anand and Kramnik to me(!) are about even in strength. But Anand plays more risky!
Morozevich soundly defeated Kramnik in his only loss. While Anand skated by Grischuks’ fine effort after Grischuk went astry in the endgame with 52. Rd4?! and maybe 58. a5?! allowing Anand the draw.
There are really no what if’s here.
Anand is world champion now, and will defend that title in 2008 versus Kramnik.
The only speculation is if Anand will retain his deserved title or lose it to Kramnik in their match.
Can you kindly enable the rss feed of your blog.
Readership will increase and i can follow the blog more often
I do not know how to do that. If you can give me instruction on how to do it, I will.
I could not be with the Saggiante and Anand. I had to do the exclusive interviews with Grischuk, Gelfand, Morozevich and Aronian. I also spent time with the owner of Europe Echecs. Too many friends to catch up with.
My husband and I left the hall in the same limo with Kramnik, his manager, Loek VanWely and DJ from New in Chess.
Strange ceremony to me.
Howcome the FIDE president Kirsan was not there ?
He only sends his deputy there.
Maybe because he is a russian and felt a bit of stroke after Kramnik lose the title ?
Susan, I’m not an expert on RSS feed. But here’s a link that may help.
of course wikipedia
May be Murali can give more input.
