Anand number one, or not...

Vishwanathan Anand was announced to be ranked #1 on the next FIDE rating list. Finally, Veselin Topalov is still ranked first on the list that was published yesterday. Protestations by the indian federation... The results of Morelia-Linares should be included in the next list to be published very soon. Quite strange mistake !? :)

future champ?

Everytime i have checked touny results Dmitri Jakovenko seems to be first! nice to see him shoot up to no.18
Who do people see as the future champ?
I agree with Thibault that the WC domination we have seen with Kasparov et al is unlikely in the modern era. However it seems likely to be contested between Radjabov, Carlsen and Karjakin.
As it looks right now, Carlsen just seems to have that extra bit of sparkle to his genius...
