Well, the fate of the prize for first place is practically settled, but the fight for second, third and fourth places is going to be extremely tense tomorrow. Kramnik (with White) is playing Piket, Anand is playing Van Wely, and Morozevich is playing Shirov. The Shirov – Kramnik game was the most interesting in round 12. They both used to be pupils of the famous Botvinnik – Kasparov school, and until recently they were good friends. But their constant competition worsened their relationship. And after Kramnik (instead of Shirov, as Alexei thought was fair) had played a match with Kasparov, they became nearenemies.

Several rounds before the final Alexei had +5 and then he simply squandered them. After two losses with Black, Alexei was thrown back into the main group. Today Shirov used such a terrible novelty against Ivanchuk in the well-known variation of the Sicilian Defense that it seemed that Vassily would surrender in the very opening. Nevertheless, Ivanchuk managed to find several accurate moves and not to drop the flag in time trouble… As for Shirov, he held out just till the first time control. What an offensive defeat!

Bravo, Kramnik! With this fine gesture Vladimir rectified his misdeed in their recent rapid chess match in Budapest, when in an absolutely drawn position he made his opponent forfeit on time… After the eleventh round Kramnik’s position is quite unenviable: the world champion shares fourth through sixth places with Anand and Ivanchuk. Kasparov is a point and a half ahead of him, while Shirov and Morozevich are a half point ahead of him. Taking into consideration the fact that in the semifinal round he will have to play Shirov with Black, Kramnik will have to do his best in order to finish second after Kasparov.
