Aronian is a better challenger to Magnus and look what kind of a challenger he is.

Why do you guys think he can challenge Magnus? Get real, the candidates first

As Vlad turns in an un- Kramnik like performance , Fabiano continues to show why he is the most likely challenger to Sir Magnus of Norway. Exciting time to be chess fan.
