The Opening Ceremony for the Topalov – Kramnik World Championship match took place yesterday in Elista. It looks like President Ilyumzhinov went all out to stage a spectacle. Let’s hope the match would be just as colorful and exciting!

From all the email that I received predicting the outcome of the match, 51% voted for Topalov, 48% voted for Kramnik and 1% decided to vote for Bugs Bunny.Posted by Picasa
