It's good that Anand & Topalov will play a match - they have both been in the top 3 or 4 for many year, and right now are the best 2 players in the world

Surely within 2 years Magnus will be unstopable!?

I very much like the play of Aronian, plays with great creativity...

also, Mangus has age on his side..

He is the only teenager in the top-100 !
