In January 2019, Five-time world champion Viswanathan Anand scored a crushing


win over world number three, Shakhriyar Mamedyarov of Azerbaijan in the 8th round 

to share the lead with Norway's Magnus Carlsen in the Tata Steel Chess tournament in 

Wijk Aan Zee, the Netherlands. Before this, Anand outclassed Vladimir Kramnik of 

Russia as black in the previous round. With this, Viswanathan Anand’s tally reached 

5.5 points out of a possible 8 and is matched only by reigning world champion Carlsen 

who himself played a fine game to beat Richard Rapport of Hungary.
