World Chess Champs 2005

Don't know if anyone else is fond of the game, but the World titles are coming up, so I thought I should mention it to see if it is of any interest.

Here is the field:

V. Anand
V. Topalov
P. Leko
P. Svidler
J. Polgar
M. Adams
A. Morozevich
R. Kasimdzhanov


I would be rather surprised if Veselin or Vishwanathan didn't take it out.

It's nice to play it but I think I wouldn't ever watch it.

Leko has got a very good chance

You cannot appreciate what is going on when top players compete because most of the action remains hidden. Unless of course you are at a master-level skill (ELO rating about 2200) For those of you not familiar with the ELO scale, an amateur has a rating of 1100 and the top rated players (Anand and Topalov) are close to 2800.
