Zurich Chess challenge 2015 - Round 5

Opening: A22: English

Player(s): Karjakin, Anand

GM Larry Christiansen recaps Round 5. ANAND! Last round finished without changing anything in the standings, with three draws. This makes Anand the winner of the Zurich Classic, with 7 points out ouf 10. Nakamura took second, with 6 points. Then Kramnik third with 5 and Caruana, Aronian and Karjakin with 4. The tiger of Madras still kicks, and he's always a though guest, despite every now and then the chess world seems to decide that he's finished, he's old, he should retire. Anand used his excellent reparation - which comes from the World Championship Match he lost to Carlsen - to play good chess, precise and sometimes brilliant. His win over Nakamura in round 4 was crucial; today, when he saw Nakamura drawing with Aronian, Vishy took the most secure road to draw his game, exchanging Queens and entering a drawish endgame. Congratulations to one of the best chess players ever!
