If you had to put money on the following bet, which side would you choose:
a) Carlsen to win
b) Anyone else to win?
actually they are all good, i just hope the most imaginative player in this championship will win.Anyway i would bet svidler will win, i mean the normal tournys everyone can win but svidler won 4 times russian championship come on...
You mean, good Russian players hide from international well-funded tournaments because they spare their forces for the Russian championship ?
Otherwise, what makes you think that winning the RC four times is more valuable that scoring indecently in all the recent events ?
please tell me how many grandmasters russia has, then again tell me what score the non russian gms in the candidates now have.
Well, there are 2 non-Russian's leading the tournament.
His point was, how can a tournament limited to a single country be the strongest, no matter how strong that country is?
BTW, Svidler is 6 time Russian champion.
For your second question, a combined 10/20.
Aronian and Carlsen are not Russian, right ? They are at 3/4.
The Russian GMs in the Candidates are exactly in the average as far as score are concerned (Svidler 2.5/4, Kramnik 2/4, Grischuk 1.5/4 -> average 2/4).
anyway svidler will win, thx Scott for clarifying that.
Well i think svidler or grischuk will win, maybe even ivanchuk.
Tetsu is seriously threatening becoming a hi-class Yereslov.
Let's be serious a second.
Svidler is playing well at least compared to what I expected from him, but to win that tournament, you need to play outstandingly.
But isn't that a contradiction in terms?
A pleasant disease.
Ummm... Svidler should do well, and I want him to win I think, but Magnus will win I'd bet. In the end, I just want anand to keep his title.
it's kinda like the number 0, makes no difference if it's positive or negative. same idea with a high-class and low-class yereplonker.

I guess so, Yeres hi-class anyway, right?
how about a hi-jacking question....
How long do you think Carlsen will hold the title (if he becomes WCC now)?
Btw, i think if Ivanchuk became WCC that would be pretty cool, i just like that guy more
Anand will not go down easily....
that and i think everyone can still wind the tournament
