Congratulations to Gelfand

As the final standings [above] in the 2013 candidates' tournament shows, Boris Gelfand had a very decent tournament. Scoring a respectable 6.5/14 against -- literally -- the world's strongest opposition, he had tied for 5th/6th place.

What's more, his performance was 50% or better against everybody except for Magnus Carlsen, which is hardly a shame, considering that Carlsen is very likely the greatest natural chess genius since Robert "Bobby" Fischer.

Congratulations, Boris -- and good luck in the future.
