World champion Viswanathan Anand played out his fourth draw in five games and stayed at the bottom after the penultimate round of the Zurich Chess Challenge yesterday. Anand drew with Israel's Boris Gelfand to take his tally to two points.

In the fourth round, Anand had lost to Fabiano Caruana of Italy. Caruana is currently leading the pack with three points after he drew with Russian Vladimir Kramnik. “It’s a pity when everything has to be defended tactically, it’s much nicer when the position holds itself, I think black was quite shaky,” Anand said.
