Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-13-16  Chessinfinite: Anand ahead in Leon 2016. Good show against the talented Wei Yi, and including a shock loss to D Anton !. Anand is probably getting warmed up for the GP rapids later.
Jun-13-16  sanju1996d: the loss against Anton was nothing much but a missed sequence. anand was better and pushing for win, but ended up with back rank weakness and losing the game.

Vishy Anand beat Chinese prodigy Wei Yi in the finals and is now nine-time winner at Leon!
