It's gonna be an excellent tournament! Will Kramnik try to win someone other than Sokolov, van Welly and Ponomariov? How will Leko perform? What Topalov has up his sleeve? In what shape is Polgar? How will Morozevich perform in the "highest society" after a long absence? Has Svidler rested after the titanic work he did last year? Can Grishchuk surprise us? Has Ponomariov learned how to switch of his phone? And of course the most important question: will Anand win and make unification ridiculous?
So many questions to be answered, so many games to be enjoyed! Can't wait till the start!

Anand will win after Topalov and Adams, but I hope that Moro will bring up some good chess.
And as a dutchman I like to see Loek van Wely. Maybe he isn't the best of the world. He's always willing to set the board on fire.
Greatest question: How will Polgar play after a year not playing?

Leko will suprise the chessworld and win the tournament...
p.s. just my humble opinion:
2de : anand

My God that woman plays some sharp chess. I've been following on chessgames.com. It's a pleasure to see such attacking play. Was surprised that Kramnik only drew as I thought he was in a great position.
As for Anand - Grischuk. I can only assume they've worked out who they're going to try and get points off and this game was a half!
All in all though not a bad first day.
