    May God have mercy on their wardrobes!

    I imagine your performance rating takes a bit of a hit when you have to dress up like an Aixinjuelo Puyi cosplayer.

    lol rec'd.

    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.

    Not looking like Wang is going to score 50% - whereas Bacrot is showing that he deserved to be included, Wang appears a lot more like a rank and file player than a super gm.
