Viswanathan Anand, an Indian chess master, defeated world champion Magnus Carlsen in seventh round of the Norway Chess blitz event on route to a fourth-place finish.

10 Player blitz event

However, in the 10-player blitz event early on May 31, the former world champion lost to Anish Giri (Netherlands) and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (France) in the fourth and ninth rounds, respectively, to end with 5 points.

Indian GM defeated Norway

In the blitz, the Indian GM defeated Aryan Tari (Norway), before drawing with So in round two. In the third round, he defeated veteran Veselin Topalov before sharing the point with Teimur Radjabov.

Anand defeated Carlsen after losing to Giri and drawing with Hao Wang (China). After starting with 2.5 points from the first three rounds, a draw against Shakhriyar Mamedyarov followed by a loss to Vachier-Lagrave put an end to his aspirations of a high finish.

Anand defeated Carlsen

Anand's victory over Carlsen follows his compatriot and teen star R Praggnandhaa's recent victory over the Norwegian world champion in an online blitz event.

America took the first place in the Blitz

American Wesley So took first place in the Blitz rankings with 6.5 points, one point ahead of Carlsen, and Giri took third place. As a result, he earned the chance to choose his starting number in the traditional competition.

The 10 players will play a classical event beginning later on May 31. Anand begins his campaign in the Classical event with a game against Vachier-Lagrave.
