What is your source for Aronian acting as one of Gelfand's seconds? I have not heard that.– ETDMay 26, 2012 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.– xaisoftMay 27, 2012 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 :)– ETDMay 27, 2012 at 20:29
