Mainz:

Viswanathan Anand scored 5-3 victory over Russian Alexander Grischuk after two decisive games on the final day to stamp his authority for the fifth time on the trot in the Mainz Chess Classic tournament. The Indian ace, who needed just half point from the last two games, won the seventh game of the eight-game contest in Grenke Leasing championship, the main event of the tournament. Grischuk managed to win the last game, but that only helped him reduce the losing margin. Mainz thus continued to remain Anand's favourite hunting ground. (PTI)
