Zurich: Five-time World Champion Viswanathan Anand celebrated the Indian World Cup victory with a crushing win against Levon Aronian of Armenia in the second round of Zurich Chess Challenge yesterday.
Under tremendous pressure to perform like the Indian cricket team, Anand delivered the goods thanks to a remarkable piece of homework and gave no chance to Aronian who had beaten the Indian ace just a few days back during the Grenke Chess Classic.
The victory helped Anand to find himself in joint lead alongside Hikaru Nakamura of United States who played out a draw with Vladimir Kramnik of Russia.
