Viswanathan AnandFive-time World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand of India on 15 December 2014 won his maiden London Classic Chess title. To win the title, he defeated British Grandmaster Michael Adams in the fifth and final round.

Results Final round
• Viswanathan Anand (India, 7) beat Michael Adams (England, 4)
• Anish Giri (Netherlands, 7) drew with Vladimir Kramnik (Russia, 7)
• Hikaru Nakamura (USA, 6) drew with Fabiano Caruana (Italy, 4)

The victory at London Classic confirmed Anand's presence in elite chess for some time as earlier in November 2014 he had lost to Magnus Carlsen of Norway in the world championship match at Sochi. The quick recovery of Anand in London suggests that there is more to expect from the Indian on the chess board.
