As of November 1, 2009, Topalov is expected to remain at the #1 spot, 9 points ahead of Magnus Carlsen. Anand is expected to be in 3rd place, 13 points behind Carlsen. Aronian is expected to be in 4th place, just 2 points behind Anand. A lot of things can change fast at the Tal Memorial as Carlsen, Anand, Aronian, and Kramnik will face each other.

There’s no doubt that Magnus will rule.
No he will not.
Yes he will.
The one vote for Anand came from – Anand?
There is only one, he’s number 1, he sets up baits, then checks and mates.
I think Magnus Carlsen will become a chess legend after Tal Memorial 2009.
Garry Kasparov is doing a excellent job with him and for the first time in many years the search for a “Bobby” Fischer is over.
Anand will be World Champion at the end of 2009 and that is all it really matters.
