The official site for the 2013 Geneva event included a new FIDE logo that I don't remember seeing before. I've copied it to this post.

While I was preparing those, I realized I had no tiebreak info for 2007 Mexico City, and will add it ASAP.

The second edition of the FIDE Grand Prix has been just as chaotic as the first (see 2008-2009 Grand Prix for background and links). I last commented on the situation in a post on London Candidates - First Week, but much has happened since then and I haven't found the time to dissect the changes. In any case, the situation is certain to continue evolving. I'll add relevant links to the page on the 2012-2013 Grand Prix -- and maybe do a post here -- as soon as I can.

Why would FIDE want to award the organization of the match without a bidding process? Didn't they learn anything from the disastrous schism that was the result of the flawed award in 1993? See FIDE/PCA Chronology for more about those dark days that resulted in a lost decade for world class chess players.
