My dream World Chess Championship

Sep 13, 2008, 8:32 PM |

At the end of the Bilbao tournament there were eight Grandmasters rated over 2750, according to the Live Ratings website. I can only dream of the halcyon days of old with candidate matches. If we could return to those days, with the match-ups being #1 with #8; #2 with #7; #3 with #6; and #4 with #5, we would have, with #1 & #3 on one side, and #2 & #4 on the other:
Topalov vs Radjabov
Carlsen vs Kramnik

The winner of those matches would play the winner of:
Morozevich vs Aronian
Ivanchuck vs Anand

I can only dream that some wealthy patron would like to see these matches as much as I and will come forward to, in the words of Jean-Luc Picard, "Make it happen!"
