Anand retains World Chess Championship 2012

I am a chess lover and I know how it feels to see an Indian on world map like a Roaring King. He has made every Indian proud. I wish him very very good luck for coming years and do believe he will retain number one position on ranking charts as well.

“The match was so even that I did not know what shape the tie breaker would take. I am relieved, but too tensed to be happy,” said Anand in the press conference after the victory.

Talking about his opponent, Anand added “He (Gelfand) had many chances to come back in the 3rd and the 5th game.”

Anand beat Gelfand in a 4 match tie breaker. 2.5 to 1.5 in the tie breaker.
