ChessMexico 07, Rd 12: This round begins today and we have Anand with a 1.5 point lead over his closest pursuer, Gelfand. Anand's victory over Morosevich in Round 11 could be the push that made him a virtual world champion. Barring catastrophic losses in these last three rounds, it looks like Anand will become the official world champion on Saturday. The reigning champion's performance remains uninspired and a great disappointment. I am very interested in how Kramnik will sum up his performance after the tournament.
