Candidates Finals: Gelfand Wins

We had a bit of it all in this final, with moments of quietness, moments of boredom, and at the end, just great chess. Grischuk played a Gruenfeld, and ran into trouble with a novelty by Gelfand. The position teetered but held, until a mistake put Gelfand in command, and he brought home the point, winning the right to challenge Anand in 2012. Report with annotations by GM Alejandro Ramirez.
