Profile

Anand must be having nightmares about Magnus Carlsen. The Norwegian prodigy has defeated India's chess grandmaster in both of their last meetings. Anand was unable to defend his World Championship against Carlsen in his hometown Chennai in 2013. He won the Candidates Tournament in March 2014 earning Rs 1 crore and a chance for a rematch with Carlsen, which the 23-year-old Carlsen won again.
