Carlsen Wins World Blitz, Anand Finishes Third

V Anand followed up his world rapid Championship title with a fine run even at the blitz event that drew to a close today in Riyadh.

Magnus Carlsen (16 points) took the blitz title, with Anand and Karjakin finishing the tournament with 14-1/2 points each. Karjakin took the second place and Anand third.

Though Anand missed a double, it was a brilliant performance overall, demonstrating that he is still a mighty force in world chess.
