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.

Thanks for the link, that was a good post from the World Champ.
