Viswanathan Anand Wins World Championship

Update: Oct 29, 2008
India’s Viswanathan Anand drew the 11th game of the 12-game World Chess Championship final with white pieces against Vladimir Kramnik to take an unbeatable 6.5-4.5 lead and retain his world title.

The game ended in a draw after 24 moves as Kramnik failed to find a win despite trying to complicate the game.

Anand won three games, the third, fifth and sixth and lost the 10th in a match that looked one-sided till Kramnik brought back some life with a win in 10th game.
