Former world chess champion, Viswanathan Anand played out a draw by combating Russian Grandmaster Vladimir Kramnik within the third recreation of their four-game No-Castling match for the Sparkassen Chess Trophy in Dortmund on Saturday.
Currently, the Indian maestro leads 2-1 after 61 moves and has the advantage of entering the final.
In the England defense match, Anand, who was playing white, secured a privileged position and doubled the pressure on the Russian in the third game late on Saturday. However, Kramnik held his ground in winning the hard-fought draw.
The duo is about to meet each other in the fourth and final game later on Sunday where Anand only needs a draw to win the game.
