    Did this already happen?

    And if it hasn't happened yet, is there any websites covering this live?

    Next year - in March if memory serves me correctly. However it is in danger because of a lack of sponsors and the venue still needs to be determined.

    I heard it was this Fall.
    Waiting until March sucks.

    Topalov will win.

    My money is on Anand - but age (and its concomitant decrease in chess calculation speed and ability) has got to catch up to him sometime soon

    I think the top grandmasters should maybe form a union maybe since it seems like the prize fund for a world championship match is really low in relation to world champion status.

    What do you mean heinzkat, all the GM's start out a4h4. (Meant to be funny, not insulting, so please forgive me if I insulted anyone. Definitely not intended as an insult but a friendly chuckle.)
