Kramnik will have White tomorrow against Topalov

On the official website for the World Chess Championship is a description of the ceremony for the drawing of lots. I thought this is a delightful way to start such a tournament!

According to, Kramnik has played thirty-two games as White against Topalov from 1993 to 2006. Kramnik has mixed up his openings, but I am guessing he is going to play 1. d4, and it will turn into a Queen's Gambit Declined. I am anxious for this game. I have about 10-1/2 hours to wait!
