Aeroflot rapid

Wednesday was the second day of the Aeroflot chess festival in Moscow, when the last five rounds of the big Swiss rapid tournament were held. The 32 qualifiers for the rapid knockout final are known (among them Gata Kamsky and Le Quang Liem), and one of the seeded players they might face is none other than Anatoly Karpov.
