Vishy takes a commanding lead

Chess Grandmaster Viswanathan "Vishy" Anand took a commanding lead at the World Chess Championship being played in Mexico City. In a powerful and exciting game, he totally dominated his opponent, GM Alexander Morozevich of Russia. Vishy has now seven and a half points and he is the only player who has not lost a single game. Israel's GM Boris Gelfand is in second place with six points.

Vishy right now is playing an outstanding 88 points above his current 2792 ELO rating.

I predict that he will win the world's chess title and he will have a very long reign.
