However, Anand had to play the tie-breaker before clinching the title as Vladimir Fedoseev and Ian Nepomniachtchi, both of Russian Federation, also scored 10.5. At the end of the fifteen rounds, Anand remained unbeaten in the competition with six wins and nine draws. In 2010, when Anand defeated Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria to win the Fide World Championships, he had the privilege of being advised by Kasparov, often hailed as a genius. Earlier in the tournament, he won against the old rival Magnus Carlsen of Norway.
Round 15 saw Anand draw with Bu Xiangzhi while Carlsen went down to Grischuk. "He seemed to be in great form, as always", Anand added.

Jurgen Klopp , as quoted by the Independent , has highlighted to Salah the importance of him keeping up this magical form for the remainder of the season.
Beating a player (Carlsen) who has been dominant in rapid and blitz rating lists was an accomplishment. "But I played well", Anand said after his triumph. "Once Nepomniatchi won his game and tied for first, I thought I would have to win against him but then a little later Fedoseev won and I realized my tiebreak would actually be against him".
The President of India has called Anand an inspiration for all Indians and maybe it's a sign that the day Anand will be conferred with the Bharat Ratna is not far. We played next few moves.

The leisure and hospitality segment lost about 1,700 jobs in November, compared with October. Total nonfarm employment in Tennessee grew by 1,800 jobs in November.
Anand beat Fedoseev 2-0 in the two-game tie-break to ensure that his awe-inspiring show reaches its logical conclusion. In 2012, he defeated Boris Gelfand via a rapid tie-break to win the title for the fourth consecutive time. In what was a thrilling and exciting array of rapid rounds, chess lovers worldwide witnessed some exciting encounters and many surprises throughout the opening rounds. "It's an absolutely unbelievable feeling and just so unexpected after all the disappointments in rapid chess", says Anand. I wasn't even planning to come to this tournament, because it was announced very late. "Even feeling euphoric, I had to keep containing my happiness because there was still work to be done".
Congratulations Viswanathan Anand.You have proven your mettle time and again.
