Details

The players are:

  • Grandmaster Veselin Topalov. FIDE world champion 2005-2006; peak rating 2813
  • Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand. FIDE world champion 2000-2002, 2008; peak rating 2799
  • Grandmaster Anatoly Karpov. FIDE world champion 1993-1999; peak rating 2780

Observe that Topalov beats Anand, Anand beats Karpov, and Karpov beats Topalov (here, “beats” means “wins more games than”).

The games thus resemble a noisy version of “rock paper scissors”.
