World Chess Championship Mexico 2007 - Participants - World Chess Champion Vladimir Kramnik

The World Chess Championship Mexico 2007 will take place in Mexico City (Mexico), September 12 - October 1, 2007. One of the participants is current world chess champion Vladimir Kramnik from Russia. His path to the World chess title and WCC Mexico 2007:

November 2, 2000, London: Vladimir Kramnik became the 14th World Chess Champion with a brilliant 8.5-6.5 result against Garry Kasparov, who could not win a single game. After Garry Kasparov had congratulated him, the greatest dream of his life became true: World Chess Champion...

In 2004, he faced off in another World Chess Championship, this time in Switzerland: Kramnik successfully defended his title against the official challenger, Hungarian super grandmaster Péter Lékó. In a complex strategic battle, he pulled off a supreme coup, winning in the 14th game – the last in the match – with a 7:7 tie. Traditionally, the reigning World Champion has to be beaten outright based on points – the challenger Lékó came heart-wrenchingly close to doing so.

The World Chess Title Unification Championship: In October 2006, Kramnik, the Classical World Champion, defeated reigning FIDE World Champion Veselin Topalov in a unification match, the FIDE World Chess Championship 2006. The match was mired with controversy over Topalov's protests about Kramnik's frequent use of the bathroom. Kramnik forfeited Game 5 after refusing to play when the Appeals Committee altered the conditions of the match. The match was tied at 6-6 after 12 regular games and Kramnik won the rapid tie-break 2.5-1.5.
