Kramnik is not playing. $50,000 USA appearance fee and another $50,000 USA in the first prize are not enough to get him involved. Some people say there is no money in chess. Well, obviously that is true about some countries.:)

Following an initial draw and than a loss Morozevich went on a rampage with 6 straight wins, 4 of which were with the black pieces.
