Viswanathan Anand Draws Again in London Chess Classic, to Meet Michael Adams in the Final Round



London: Former world champion Viswanathan Anand settled for his fourth draw in the London Chess Classic and almost went out of title race at the Olympia here .


The white pieces against Anish Giri of Holland did not come good for the Indian as the latter equalised leaving the Indian on four points with just one more round to come in the Classic.


Hikaru Nakamura of United States enthused some life in the tournament defeating Michael Adams of England from what was perceived a drawn endgame.


In the other game of the day, Vladimir Kramnik could do little with his white pieces and split the point with Fabiano Caruana of Italy.


With just one round remaining in the six-player round-robin tournament, Giri and Kramnik still share the lead on six points under the soccer-scoring system that gives three points for a win and one for a draw.


The two leaders are now pursued by Nakamura on five points while Anand on four. The Indian shares the fourth spot along with Adams. Caruana with his third draw in four games, is at the bottom of the tables with three points - an unfamiliar situation for the world number two.
