Anand draws

London: World champion Viswanathan Anand played out a draw with Judit Polgar of Hungary to go out of contention in the London Chess Classic, here, on Sunday.

Having lost a game through a blunder in the previous round, Anand was apparently satisfied with the result as Polgar also played it safe after showing early aggression.

For the first time in the tournament, all the four games were drawn leaving Norwegian Magnus Carlsen with a huge five points lead over Russian Vladimir Kramnik.

Carlsen drew with American Hikaru Nakamura after an exciting game to take his tally to 17 points in the soccer-like scoring system in place here. (PTI)
