Congratulations to GM Carlsen!

I failed miserably. I tried working on the follow-up to 'Wonderboy' 2000-2001, while watching the last round of the 2013 Candidates Tournament, but I couldn't divert my attention from the live games.

As most of the active chess world was aware, GM Carlsen needed a win to ensure victory in the tournament and snare the qualification for a shot at the World Championship later this year. He lost, but so did his main rival, GM Kramnik. Instead of Anand - Kramnik II, we'll be seeing Anand - Carlsen I.

For a comprehensive set of links to the London event, see the post on my WCC blog: London Candidates - Second Week. I'll return to Magnus Carlsen's Tournament, Match, and Exhibition Record as soon as I can.
