Superbet Chess Tournament: Viswanathan Anand wins rapid test with one round to lose | Chess News


WARSAW (Reuters) – Former world champion Viswanathan Anand won the rapid event of the Superbet Rapid and Blitz Poland chess tournament on Saturday with one round to spare.
Anand scored six wins and two draws to seal the Rapid title in style.
The Indian general manager, who picked up five wins and a draw after the conclusion of six rounds, won his seventh round match against Romania’s David Gavrilescu in 25 strokes.
In the next round, the veteran GM settled for a draw against American ace Fabiano Caruana in 27 shots in an attacking Petroff Classical game.
Anand picked up victories over Radoslaw Wojtaszek of Poland (in the first round), before getting the better of American Wesley So and Anton Korobov (Ukraine) in the following rounds.
He later scored against Kirill Shevchenko and Levon Aronian before Jan-Kryzstof Duda (Poland) ended his winning streak in the sixth round.
After nine rounds of Rapide, players will compete in a two-day Blitz event, with each player playing the other nine twice.
