Poor Vishy. Only a few weeks after losing the world championship in front of a billion countrymen, he travels to London and gets massacred by the man whom he beat in their 2008 match - Vladimir Kramnik. But wait, this is rapid, and anything can happen, so FM Kavutskiy then shows a brilliant effort from Peter Svidler, against Kramnik! We've got obstruction tactics, powerful retreats, and world champions coming out of our ears. Purist or not, you have to admit that rapid chess isn't dull!
