Wow! I thought I was the only one to re-read this thread
You know what trysts? I bet this thread takes off again when the next candidates tournament starts. It'll just pick right up here and continue on. As though it never paused.
That's a lot of pages!
It might double.
Then it would be a Chess.com e-book
Trysts, maybe you should collect all appropriate comments and put them together to make a book and start selling it. It would definitely become a bestseller. :)
Better dust off the yellow ties in preparation.
And there was actually news today: Svidler gets the wild card for the next Candidates, coming march.
Why'd they already pick?! To be fair they could've picked the highest AVERAGE rating over the last year or some other time period. I thought maybe Naka had a chance, he had climbed up to #4. Damn.
Ok, I checked the Svidler choice out. It makes since even though he is currently ranked #13. He did finish 3rd in the last candidates and he did just win his 7th Russian championship. SEVENTH! Ok. He was a good choice. Even if he didn't just win another Russian title he had a good finish in the strongest tournament in the world. It makes sense to pick the player that finished right behind Carlsen and Kramnik and beat Carlsen in the last round.
Looks like Anand's in the lead while being the only player who is undefeated. It's either him or Aronian.
