It's Karpov vs Anand in the finals

They started off with 350 players from 32 countries, amateurs and GMs. Now they are down to two, the finalists in the 6th Corsica Open. On Monday November 4 at 10:30 and at 14:30 ex world champion Anatoly Karpov faces India's Viswanathan Anand, who has chalked up some awesome rapid chess results lately.

Anand won the Eurotel Trophy (against Karpov in the final!), he went on to beat FIDE world champion Ruslan Ponomariov in the Mainz Chess Classic, and then took the FIDE World Chess Cup (at regular time controls) in Hyderabad last month. He has also set his sights to cross the 2800 Elo mark, as he confirmed in a Hindustan Times interview.
