Volodya versus Vesko
Compiled by Resignation Trap
--*--

Now that Veselin Topalov has won the FIDE World Championship in San Luis, Argentina, many chess enthusiasts are excited about a possible match between him and Vladimir Kramnik.

They have played each other many times since 1993 with classical time controls, as well as with Rapid time controls, blitz games and blindfold games.

In the decisive encounters between these two Grandmasters, Kramnik holds the lead by approximately a 2:1 ratio.
