Dennis Monokroussos in Anand-Gelfand 2012, Anand-Gelfand World Championship Match, Levon Aronian

Here's a nice summary article over on ChessVibes, with among other things, video clips of both Anand's and Gelfand's homecomings and a compilation of various Tweets on the match. Here's a funny exchange:

Levon Aronian
Congrats to World Champion Anand! Great comeback in the later stage of the match! Gelfand deserves a praise for his creative & dynamic play!

Mig Greengard
@LevAronian What, did they play another match? ; )

Levon Aronian
@chessninja How come the less a person knows about a subject, the more he treats it with disrespect.

I'm with Aronian on this one. To put the match in restaurant parlance, the problem wasn't with the food, which was generally tasty, but with the size of the portions. If Mig had complained about that, then my sympathies would be on his side.
