For me, chess is not a profession. It is a way of life, a passion. People may feel that I have conquered the peak and will not have to struggle. Financially, perhaps that is true; but as far as chess goes, I’m still learning a lot!
…..Viswanathan Anand……..

The era of Anand has ended or still there is something to be watched. Viswanathan Anand was outplayed by Norwegian Magnus Carlsen in the battle of the world chess title. Carlsen who is 22 years old won three games and made a seventh draw on Friday that resulted in victory mark of 6.5 points.

It is a big news in Chess world that Anand has been defeated but no one perhaps could believe on it but it is true. Anand, who is 21 years older than his rival, has lost the title that he held since 2007. There are four draws that Carlsen played in the tournament against Anand but he could not understand the blunders Carlsen made in the fifth game.

Anand hold Grand Master title in 1988 and undisputed world title in 2007 that Carlsen broke in just 11 years while it took 20 years to get these titles by Anand. We do not know that whether Anand would get the titles again or not but we hope that he would triumph again.
