Quick Observations From King's Tournament

After following the games on the King's Tournament, I noted a few observations:

1. Magnus Carlsen is the man to beat when it comes to the Candidates Final next year - he can play all positions and almost all openings equally well.

2. No opponent should ever play 1.d4 against Teimour Radjabov again unless they are totally prepared to face his King's Indian Defense.

3. For a 40+ year old guy, Gelfand still has some fuel left in his tank and can teach those young whippersnappers a thing or two.
