Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand today said that he was aiming to cross the 2800 elo rating and win the FIDE world title in the coming years. Anand told a press conference here that his ambition now was to cross the 2800 mark in elo ratings and win the FIDE world title under the FIDE reunification system. "This year has been good to me. I have been performing so well that I will have to keep the momentum to cross the 2800 mark," he said. "Right now I am hoping to pile up some points in the coming Linares tournament. I felt encouraged by the way I am playing and improving upon my game. I think I should do like this more often because it is in tournaments that I get a lot of my work done. I would like to play a lot of tournaments next year," Anand said. (PTI)
