A quite intricate draw for the World Championship match was held several minutes ago in one of the halls of the State Tretyakov Gallery. Two  demonstration boards with the positions from Anand's and Gelfand's games of different time and results were put on the stage. The Indian took out a brush from the casket; he then was asked to paint on one of the boards. When Anand started to paint, the colour of the paint turned out to be white. After a long pause it was announced that the reigning world champion will play White tomorrow.

The ceremony continues, there's live music performed by young talents. Denis Matsuev is on the stage right now. Shortly before, Ilyumzhinov declared the match opened.
