Anand draws with Giri, Hari scares Caruana

World Champion Viswanathan Anand missed out on his chances and drew with Dutch champion Anish Giri, while P Harikrishna held higher-ranked Fabiano Caruana of Italy in the second round of 75th edition of Tata Steel Chess tournament here.

After a first round ‘easy draw’ as white, Anand was happy to get an uncompromising position against Giri and stood better but the Dutchman got off the hook finding some precise defense in the endgame.

The second round did not produce any decisive games even though it were hard-fought. As a result, the lead positions remained unchanged.
