Who Do You Think is the Challenger, in the Classical Match Lineage?

Anand speaking to the public in Spanish and English (source:

A note that surely mirrors contention sure to arrise in the discussion circles in the months ahead. Anand indeed is the best right now, has been winning, has the highest rating at a likely 2803*, and will be included in the new FIDE ratings lists due out in the next 36 hours or likely sooner**, BUT, there are those who will say he did not meet Kramnik in a match. A tell from ICC just now:

Heliopolitanus(GM) kibitzes: mig keeps talking as if it would be Kramnik challenging Anand next year
Heliopolitanus(GM) kibitzes: noway, Anand will be challenging Kramnik

[*Or 2804 according to another kibitzer now. **ratings are already done, but FIDE will simply have to include Mexico City, as announced will occur.]

Anand is amazing. A well deserved win (he was the only player with ZERO losses for the entire tournament). And, for a change, a charismatic, charming, polite, and sane voice of chess. Wonderful!
