But, since two other men, Vladimir Fedoseev and Ian Nepomniachtchi, both of Russian Federation, also scored the same number of points, a tie-breaker was required to decide the victor.

Anand beat Fedoseev 2-0 in the two-game tie-break to ensure that his awe-inspiring show reaches its logical conclusion. It was unexpected because I was not even planning coming to the tournament as it was announced very late. A draw with Jhao Jun of China in the opening round and then win over Vladislav Kovalev of Belarus in the second round.
Garry Kasparov heaped praise on Anand, saying the title is a ideal answer for everyone who wanted him to end his career.
