Anand draws with Caruana in Sinquefield Cup

Former world champion Viswanathan Anand played out a second straight draw by holding American Fabiano Caruana with ease in the fourth round of the Sinquefield Cup -- a part of the Grand Chess tour.
Playing his third black in four games, Anand did not show any nervousness caused by losses with the slightly unfavourable colour in the game in round one and two.

After an easy draw with Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria, this was a confident performance by the Indian who is hoping for a comeback in the USD 3,00,000 prize money tournament.

The number of decisive games remained on the decline since the first round that produced all decisive results in the 10-player round-robin event. While there were three and two respectively in the subsequent rounds in the fourth round it got reduced to just one.

However, the best game was the one played between Levon Aronian of Armenia who outclassed Wesely So of United States.
