Ivanchuk Wins World Rapid Chess Title, Carlsen Third

Vidit Eighth, Anand a Poor 16th

Reigning champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway had to be content with the Bronze as Ukrainian Vassily Ivanchuk struck Gold after a stellar run at the World Rapid Chess Championship that concluded in Doha yesterday.

Another surprise result was Indian GM Vidit Santhosh Gujrathi finishing eighth, well ahead of former World Champion V Anand, who came in a poor 16th, having lost to Ivanchuk in Round 14. Well done Ivanchuk and Vidit!
