Anand beats Adams

Wijk Aan Zee:

World rapid champion Vishwanathan Anand put it across world championship finalist Michael Adams of England to move within striking distance of leader Peter Leko of Hungary in the 12th and penultimate round of Corus chess tournament. Anand took his tally to 7.5 points from 12 games in the event and with just one round to go trails Leko by just a half point. In the final round game, Anand will play against off-form Ivan Sokolov of Netherlands while Leko has a relatively tough customer in World's best Woman player Judit Polgar of Hungary. Bulgarian Veselin Topalov bowed out of contention for his maiden title in Corus when he could not beat Leko in a keenly contested game. Topalov with seven points in his bag slipped to third spot in the event and that's where he is likely to finish. (PTI)
