Make that "who is Aronian's secret". Early this month the Armenian master defeated GM Vladimir Kramnik 4-2 in their rapid match - a very impressive achievement with some wonderful play.

Do I hear wedding bells?
And I've just spotted a radio interview between Arianne and SBS Radio's Filipino program. Download the MP3 here. "There are so many beautiful women in chess", she said. Where?
Just diverting our attention now to something less romantic - those guys in the ACF and NSWCA better get moving over to www.chess.com soon. I'm pretty sure that that's Matthew Sweeney playing one of his usual set pieces. I am so looking forward to a reunion of familiar foes.
