Anand triumphs over Peter Leko

NEW DELHI: As expected, Viswanathan Anand lived up to the reputation of being one of the greatest rapid chess players ever by completing a 5-3 victory over home favourite Peter Leko in their eight-game match at Miskolc, Hungary, on Sunday.

On the final day, when Leko needed to win both the games to force the blitz tie-break games, Anand took an unbeatable 4.5-2.5 lead by forcing a draw in 27 moves with white.

In the inconsequential eighth game, Leko tried hard to salvage some pride with white, but Anand held on for another draw in 42 moves.

In this competition, Anand made the decisive difference by winning the second and fifth games, while rest of the games were drawn.
