Player: racketeer_66 Subject: Long Live Vlad Kramnik, Unified Chess Champion!
|Aside from the Toiletgate the battle was dramatic, intense and thrilling! Congratulations for Kramo, and congratulations for Toppy!|
Kramo has won in style: he was rock-solid, mentally stable, and went for his chances remorseless.
Toppy has fought like a lion, all credit to him for his heart, creartivity and no-nonsense - style and for always taking the risk and going for the win.
Loosing such an epic battle in a tiebreak does not seem to be the proper method to tell the difference between two genuine champions- but there had to be a way to decide.
FIDE should work out a solution to secure a place for Toppy, because he (and not Danailov) deserves it!

|How does the next championship round work? Will there be a match of someone against Kramnik in the future, or has FIDE decided on a tournament like San Luis again, with Kramnik in it?||-|

|FIDE plans next round-robin, in Mexico. Qualifications are in progress, candidate matches are expected to be played (although recenty there are some doubts).|
It is quite interesting question, whether Kramnik would play. If not, we would have two champiosn again.

|If Kramnik plays in the "final" tournament, then the match that he just won is meaningless, because Kramnik's rating would have gotten him into the Mexico final tournament anyway.|
I heard that the loser of the match would be barred from playing in the Mexico tournament, so Topalov would be out. Please tell me I misinterpreted this.
Maybe FIDE can start holding 10 round "top-100" Swiss tournaments every few months to determine the world champion??? I see why the PCA was formed now...

|you're correct that topalov can't play the world championship because he lost this match. the Fide probably thought topalov would win this world championship and kramnik wouldn't have a chance to defend his title. i guess the fide will find a way to make sure topalov can play for the worldchampionship next time, because he supported the current president of the fide in his election againt Kok.||-|
