  bumpmobile: It's too bad really. If he did he might be winning this tournament by now ;-)
Jan-23-11  shintaro go: Aronian has gotten so good that even top players are content of drawing with him.
Jan-23-11  VaselineTopLove: Anand doesn't have that great a record against Aronian, so he should be content.

Also it seems Aronian only has the Marshall as a response to 1.e4, not much variety if he wants to win with black. But that also means he'll be able to surprise with almost anything.

Jan-24-11  The Chess Express: I bet Anand goes undefeated.
Jan-24-11  The Chess Express: I think at this level the opposite colored ♗s make a draw very likely even with the extra ♙.
Feb-11-11  ReikiMaster: 30.h4 looks interesting.
