In a few hours, the players will hit the stage to compete for the last time in this World Championship. Mathematically speaking, Gelfand still has a chance to tie for first and Kramnik still has a chance to finish second. There have been so much going in Mexico City. Due to the layout, it is impossible for me to do live commentary on this blog.

However, when I come back to Texas, I will write at length about the entire experience, my contacts and dealings with the players, organizers, FIDE, officials, Zappa, Rybka, countless dignitaries and VIPs. It is absolutely fascinating being on the other side. It is a new experience for me.

What have been the biggest surprises in this World Championship? What have been some of the highlights and low lights? What is your take?
