Anand draws

Baden-Baden: Viswanathan Anand played out a draw with English Grandmaster Michael Adams to be joint second after the sixth round of Grenke Chess Classic, here.

With his fifth draw out of six games, Anand took his tally to 3.5 points out of a possible six and was joined by German Grandmaster Arkadij Naiditsch in the second spot after the latter came up with a sterling effort to beat compatriot Daniel Fridman.

The other game, of the category-19 tournament, between Fabiano Caruana of Italy and Georg Meier of Germany ended in a draw leaving the former still in front with just four rounds to come. (PTI)
