Aronian-Anand, Mexico City 2007 (Round 2)
B. In 2008 Vladimir Kramnik will play the winner of Mexico City unless he wins the event himself. Veselin Topalov as the loser of the last match in Elista will play the winner of the World Cup in Khanty Mansiysk which takes place at the end of the year. The winners of those matches will play for the title in 2009. However if Kramnik wins the WCCh tournament in Mexico City 2007, a match between Kramnik and Topalov, the current and the previous world champions, will take place in 2008. In that case, the winner of the Kramnik- Topalov match will play against the winner of the 2007 World Cup.I think I can just about handle A - but could anybody explain B to me?
I'm hoping Anand wins so we can Anand - Kramnik next year. I think that will be a better match than Kramnik - Topalov II.
Kramnik's position tonight is the sort I love to play.
