♔Anand: No Longer India's 🇮🇳 Grandmaster

  |   India News

Vishwanathan Anand lost his fourth round game against 🇷🇺Sergey Karjakin in the Candidates Championships🏆 2016 today. The defeat resulted in Vishy losing his status as 🇮🇳's top-ranked Grandmaster for the first time in the last three decades. The result was quite surprising 😳as Vishy had never lost to the young Russian in their last 26 games. The Russian who was the 2015 world cup winner was also the youngest grandmaster 👍🏻at the age of 12 years and 7 months in the year 2002. Karjakin with the white pieces started with an unorthodox move🤔 but was successful in negating Anand's strengths.The victory takes Karjakin to the first position👏🏼4 while Anand is in joint third position. The Indian can definitely turn things around with 10 more👍🏻 rounds to go and anything is possible at this moment. Meanwhile, Pentala Harikrishna has taken over the mantle of 🇮🇳's leading Grandmaster from Vishy.
