Stupid to decide the World Champion in a tournament format.

Can't wait for Anand vs Kramnik, Kramnik has a better chance in a one on one format.

Congrats to Vishy, a deserved victory for clearly playing the best chess in this tournament. I hope Kramnik-Anand match happens, I don't support either player but it will be a very interesting match.

Yep, he is obviously extremely smart and has an outstanding personality, he has definitely more credibility than the body-builders & Co. who are making a career in politics. Why do you find this so shocking, RF?
I've just seen this big article about him, but I haven't read it yet:

As for Anand, I'm so happy for him. I don't understand much from the game, but Anand has always been one of the most fascinating players for me to watch. He is so peaceful. It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Also the best rapid chess and Advanced chess player in the world... Awesome career.
