  1. Yes I am following these. After this there is another rapid match between Kramnik and Aronian. I maintain at my personal website a list of international events where the top (10) GM's play. The link to my personal website is

  2. I hope there will be some exciting chess games from this. Quick Time Controls ought to prevent too many draws.

    Two games and two draws.

    I suppose I should not be surprised.
