Quick Note on Gelfand...

Well, Chess is Hard. Credit: Horsham Chess Club.

Boris Gelfand's performance in the World Championship Candidates' Torunament is, more or less, as expected: he is last on the rating scale for the tournament, and currently in last place. However, his performance -- two losses, four draws through round six, losing to Magnus Carlsen and Levon Aronian, who are leading the field by 1.5 points -- is hardly shameful. Chessbase, for its part, has an extremely detailed look at Gelfand's career, including all previous games against all his opponents.
