After two tight matches, both players have done well to get this far. However the next few days could well be the most important in their careers up to now.
As we have seen so far in Kazan, winning one game can be enough to determine the match result! Here however there are six games (rather than four), so there is more time for the players to make their mark.
In tomorrow's game, Boris Gelfand will have White.
|Name||World rank|| |
|Alexander Grischuk||12|| |
|Boris Gelfand||16|| |
As for prizes, there will be 90.000 € for each finalist, plus of course the winner gets the right to play Viswanathan Anand for the world crown.
