Happy Birthday to Peter Leko, 35 today! In 2004, Leko beat Shirov and Toplaov on his way to challenge Vladimir Kramnik for the World Title. He was leading with 1 game to go but Vlad got the victory required to tie the match and retain his title. You don’t come much closer than that to becoming World Champion!
