Leko and Gelfand have already qualified yesterday for the World Chess Championship tournament at Mexico City. The two remaining matches between Grishuk-Rublevsky and Shirov-Aronian draw a lot of attention all over the Internet and especcially Russia.

Levon Aronian was the seventh player who qualified after drawing his game against Alexey Shirov. The Opening choice of Shirov with white was quite a surprise for all experts because he could not convert any advantage out of the Ruy Lopez.

The duel between the two Russian top Grandmasters Alexander Grishuk and Sergey Rublevsky will be decided in the tie breaks on Wednsday. Before the encounter Grischuk has to be considered as a favourite but now the outcome is totally unclear. Provided Rublevsky will manage to win the match, it will be a real surprise for an entire competition.
