Originally posted by vishyanandIt would seem that losing the title was the best thing that could have happened to him! We haven't seen this sort of consistency from him for 5 years. Great to see. I was looking at his fixtures from now on and he could easily add another win before the tournament is over. If he can do that and remain undefeated then he's pretty much certain to qualify as Aronian needs to out score him (he loses on tiebreak).
What a day at the candidates! Vishy winning, both Aronian and Kramnik losing. http://en.chessbase.com/post/candidates-rd9-decisive-round
