It is amazing that Vishy Anand’s challenger for the World Championship title is actually older than him!! The oldest player in the field of 8, Boris Gelfand, bested all the younger players to earn the right to play for the big one.

Grischuk had many chances to put this match away early but two things always happened:

1. He faltered at various critical moments
2. Gelfand’s stubborn defense

Congratulations to Boris!
