Anand & Magnus to swap the "Crown".

Life is not always sweet, Magnus and Anand will switch places in January 2011. Let the race begins! The race between the Asians & the Westerns. Anand will not be the last Asian rival in the western dominant chess world. I believe that there will more to come. Looking at the latest development, Hou Yifan  from China has proven that they have been prepared for this - to look & to conquer the chess world.
