Alexander Grischuk on the FIDE Candidates

The Russian grandmaster is a dark horse to win the event and reach a match against Magnus Carlsen - he starts a point behind the two leaders after drawing all his games in the first half - but whatever happens he’s sure to entertain us, during and after the games. In one of his pre-tournament interviews he referred to the film "In Bruges" to sum up his career so far.
