It's Gelfand!

Boris Gelfand beat Grischuk in a Gruenfeld Defence last night to earn the right to challenge Anand for the World Title next year.

Grischuk played a rather unusual Gruenfeld with a position which Chinese ace Wang Yue used successfully before against Leitao in 2010. However not challenging the white centre has its problems and soon after Grischuk got into a lost position. The whole game lasted only 34 moves.
