TeriMaKiChooth writes: "Vishwanath 'Vishy' Anand of India won the world chess title for a record fifth time. At the age of 42 it is considered impressive with most challengers in their twenties.

He defeated Isreali, Boris Gelfand for the title. This time around Anand said he was more relieved than happy as he had to play a tie-breaker to clinch the title.
