Anand beats Naiditsch, clinches victory at Grenke Chess Classic

MORE LATER On Sunday Vishy Anand finished sole first at the Grenke Chess Classic in Baden-Baden. The World Champion won a good game with Black against Arkadij Naiditsch (although he did criticize his move 24….a5) while Fabiano Caruana probably missed a win against Daniel Fridman (65…f4!?) and had to settle for a draw after seven hours of play. Adams-Meier was a relatively quick draw. This win must be a huge relief for Anand, whose last tournament win was Morelia/Linares 2008 (although his plus 4 at Tata 2011 was excellent as well).
