Anand falls to Adams

London, Dec 8, 2012, PTI :

World champion Viswanathan Anand fell prey to an inexplicable blunder in a perfectly balanced position and went down to Michael Adams of England in the sixth round of the London Chess Classic at the Olympia here.

After a fine victory in the previous round against Gawain Jones of England, the Indian ace survived some anxious moments in the middle game and just when the experts had given up declaring the game a ‘sure-draw’, Anand lost track, and lost in no time.
Magnus Carlsen beat Judit Polgar to take three-point lead .

Results Round VI: V Anand (Ind, 6) lt to Michael Adams (Eng, 10); Magnus Carlsen (Nor, 16) bt Judit Polgar (Hun, 1); Luke McShane (Eng, 4) bt Gawain Jones (Eng, 2); Levon Aronian (Arm, 45) drew with Vladimir Kramnik (Rus, 12); Hikaru Nakamura (US, 8) had a bye.
