One more Proud Moment...

One of the legends India has produced in the history of Sports and Games. He is another reason for every indian to be proud of on this day. He made Indian Flag fly high in the International arena, but its very sad that he has not got his share of credits when compared to a cricketer who has made a debut. He is one of the few personalities i admire.

Popularly known as Shatranj, requires High IQ levels and sharp thinking, and Viswanthan Anand also called as Vishy is yet again on the way to being crowned as World Champion.

Today the reigning World champion called the shots again and dumped Kramnik in the sixth game to extend his lead to three points at the half-way stage of what is turning out to be incredibly one-sided World Championship match.

With Wednesday's victory, Anand took his tally in the final to 4.5 points, and is now just two points away from establishing himself as a great World champion, having won the knock-out World Championship in 2001, the World championship match tournament last year. Now, this World Championship match looks as good as over.

Interesting fact is the World Championship is a 12-game match, with a prize pool of 1.5 million euros divided equally irrespective of the outcome of the match. What if the same rule applies for Cricket or Soccer World Cup !!!!!
