At the press conference GM Kramnik confirmed he advised Anand to participate at Candidates' in December.

"We really spoke about it in London and Vishy was unsure by that time. I advised him to participate because I really thought he had a chance and I just told him so. The fact is that we are from the same generation of players and we are on friendly terms, so I don't feel like competing, although he beat me in the World Title match. I am really happy for him. As to me I just didn't deserve it. If not him, someone else would win, so I don't regret I advised him to play. I am also happy Vishy could overcome the crises of the recent years of his career - he wasn't winning competitions, so everyone just buried him. Also I think he has all chances to win the match against Carlsen. I had similar crises, so I know what was happening inside him."
