Anand defeated Boris Gelfand to win the Championship..

When Vishwanathan Anand made his meteoric rise in chess world in the 1980s, he was nicknamed The Lightening Kid for the speed with which he calculated complex chess moves and executed them. He used to complete in just about an hour, classical games in which players could use up to three and half hours of time.

Though over the years he has slowed down a bit and nowadays plays at a more sedate pace, Anand is still one of the best players in the world when it comes to the shorter version of chess, in which players get about 30 minutes each to complete the game.

Anand’s proficiency in speed chess paid rich dividend on Wednesday as he defeated his challenger Boris Gelfand of Israel in a four-game rapid chess tiebreaker to win his fifth World Championship title and to remain the undisputed king of the chess world.

Newly-crowned world chess champion Vishwanathan Anand received a gold medal, prize money of $1.4 million (around Rs. 7.9 crores), a memento and a piece of contemporary art displaying him and challenger Boris Gelfand, for his achievement at a ceremony on Thursday.
