  • What is your source for Aronian acting as one of Gelfand's seconds? I have not heard that. – ETD May 26 '12 at 14:49
  • @EdDean - Weird. Good Catch. I had no idea how Levon Aronian got in there. I can only think that wikipedia made a mistake initially or I subconsciously put Aronian in there :). It's fixed now. – xaisoft May 27 '12 at 19:25
  • @xaisoft - Yeah, I was guessing wikipedia had it at some point and then it got removed. I was wondering if you maybe had some inside information :) – ETD May 27 '12 at 20:29
