Anand plays out another draw

London, Dec 4, 2012:

World Champion Viswanathan Anand failed to capitalise on the chances that came his way and played out a draw with Levon Aronian of Armenia in the third round of the London Chess Classic here on Tuesday.

Hunting for his first victory in a Classical Chess game since the last World Championship in May earlier this year, Anand got a better position with an extra pawn against Aronian but his opponent fought valiantly to split the points in the end.

World number one Magnus Carlsen of Norway played out a draw with co-leader Vladimir Kramnik of Russia while Michael Adams coasted to his second victory in as many games at the expense of top woman player Judit Polgar of Hungary.


Results (Round 3): Levon Aronian (Arm, 1) drew with V Anand (Ind, 2); Vladimir Kramnik (Rus, 7) drew with Magnus Carlsen (Nor, 7); Gawain Jones (Eng, 2) drew with Hikaru Nakamura (Eng, 4); Michael Adams (Eng, 6) bt Judit Polgar (Hun, 1).
