Our company's brand ambassador Vishy Anand achieved considerable success in the second tournament of the Grand Chess Tour. The legendary Grandmaster won the rapid chess tournament and finished second in the overall score.
The Grand Chess Tour is an annual series of championships featuring the world's best grandmasters. This year, the second super rapid and blitz tournament took place in Warsaw. Ten best chess players participated in the Grand Chess Tour, including our long-time partner, Indian chess legend Viswanathan Anand.
Anand became the face of InstaForex in 2019. By that time, he had already scooped many titles and awards: he had been crowned the 15th World Chess Champion, had been awarded the Chess Oscar six times, and had won the world rapid and blitz chess tournaments.
At the Grand Chess Tour, the Indian Grandmaster demonstrated a lightning reaction and impeccable effective technique. He secured a sensational victory in a rapid tournament due to these qualities. Eventually, Anand shared the second spot with Armenian Grandmaster Levon Aronian.
Anand did not take part in official chess tournaments for a long time. Taking this fact into account, it is safe to say that he still keeps his standards high. Anand’s second place in the overall score and his victory in the rapid tournament are considered excellent results. They boost confidence in the chess player's future achievements. We congratulate our partner on his success and wish him new victories!
