Suddenly there is counterplay for old men in the chess world, as three forty-somethings occupy places two through four in the world rankings. One of them, 40-year-old Vladimir Kramnik, improved his standing with a stellar European Club Championship. Scoring 4.5/5, Kramnik used vintage technique, occasionally taking advantage of overpressing opponents. His highlight win came over his mortal enemy, 40-year-old Veselin Topalov. Quiet opening moves disguised Kramnik's vicious attacking intentions.
