Wang loses half his games.
Personally I'm looking forward to Wang Yue's games. He's like my favorite player when he loses. He plays so absolutely technical his losses are great for study: you get to see how a grandmaster wears down perfectly inoffensive play. Hope he loses to Topalov.
Would also like to see Anand win maybe 1 tournament while World Champion. So my vote goes to him. I'm guessing Carlsen's probably contracted the traditional chess player's syphilis so he's probably out of the running.
