Vishy Anand is the new World Chess Champion

At last my wait for this day finished. Anand played a super double round robin tournament in Mexico to come out clear winnerof the tournament and new World Chess Champion scoring 9 our fo 13 with 4 wins and 10 draws. He is the only undefeated player in the tournament. He played great chess here showing his deep preparation and spirit and defending nicely at bad times throughout this championship.

Gelfand played a very nice tournament trailing Anand by a point at the finish but a last round victory by Kramnik ensured the equal 8 points for both of him and Kramnik and hence Kramnik became runner up in baclose score calculation.

Its fun time now to enjoy for Indians. They have recently won the Tewnty20 World Cricket Championship and now the world chess championship.

Congratulations to Anand! Enjoy the success.
