Anand draws with Wesley So, joint sixth

St Louis (USA), August 25

Victory again eluded Viswanthan Anand as he played out his sixth draw to split the point with American Wesley So at the Sinquefield Cup chess tournament. The Indian ace uncorked a beautiful game-changing novelty and So went for a set-up with some changes in the early phase of the game but Anand had his resources intact. The fourth draw with black pieces was something that the Indian ace didn’t mind in the tournament. — PTI
