    FIDE Grand Prix in Elista

    With all the discussion about the FIDE Grand Prix and withdrawals from it, its status and all I didn't even notice there was one on and it was up to round five!

    Your scrabble set for this tournament is Mamedyarov, Kasimdzhanov, Leko, Radjabov, Jakovenko, Bacrot, Inarkiev, Cheparinov, Gashimov, Grischuk, Eljanov, Akopian, Alekseev and Wang Yue.

    Gashimov and Radjabov lead on 3.5/5 with Jakovenko on 3.

    I'll bet on all players ending in "ov" and no doubt I'll lose

    take out extra insurance by limiting your bet to those simply ending in "v"

    I'll go for Leko or Akopian - not a "v" in sight!
