I just chose Carlsen because of his rating.
Ugh! Can I change my vote Naka!! Go Hikaru!!! Coverage is top notch!!
go Hikaru Nakamura! You can do it!
Yeah... Come on, McShhaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnee! :)
Lol I think it's funny how 20% vote Anand and he's last with +0 -1 =2...
I'm rooting for Ke$ha!! GOO KE$HA!!!
People that root for one player would as usually expect that player to win, so the results would be the same :)
I think chess.com members are voting for "expecting to win", not "rooting for".
I wonder what the survey creator's original intention was...
Carlsen is getting pretty loaded, didn't he just win 200,000 in the last tourney, he better be spending that cash wisely.
I think "rooting for" means "cheering, supporting and hoping for to win". In that sense it seems strange that Vishy should be placed at #2 in this survey.
"Rooting" for is different from "expecting" to win. I expect Carlsen or Aronian based on their past performance. I am rooting for McShane as he's the most interesting underdog IMO. I will also root for Nakamura to at least get out of "last" place and finish with a plus score. Everyone else is certainly great and makes this very interesting! Good luck to everyone!
And I see Short has healed nicely after my win against him. .
I hope he beats Carlsen in their game.
I love the Brits - Short, Speelman, Adams, Blackburne, Keene, Wade, Sir George Thomas, especially Miles.
Just to remind you people-Adams beat Ivanchuck at the recent Euro championships. So don't rule him out.
Vishy is World Campion of World Champion finals. Magnus is 'World Tournament Champion'
Vishy, mostly just 'cause I can't stand the World Champion not having had any major successes since being World Champion (other than, you know, of course, defending his title ;))
