Candidates Matches:

Game 5: Draw. Last game of regulation goes tomorrow, 7am EDT.
Game 6: Gelfand wins with the White pieces in a Grunfeld. The game was very interesting all the way along, with Grischuk seeming to completely fall apart in time pressure, although the play was way over my head, so it might be that he just wasn't able to come up with moves to stay in the game at that point.
So it's all over. Check back next spring for Anand-Gelfand - Best of 12.

Chinese teenager Yu Yangyi continues to move his way up the Chinese ladder as he followed up his recent 1st place tie in the Asian Continental with a crushing victory (2914 PR) in the recent Danzhou GM tournament, with all of the top Chinese players in attendence.
