Anand wins 4th Round at Bilbao Masters Final 2014

GM Viswanathan Anand once more won against GM Francisco Vallejo Pons Round 4 of the 7th Grandslam Masters Final being held in Bilbao, Spain.

This puts Anand head and shoulders above his three competitors with 10 points (3 wins, 1 tie), followed by Aronian with 6 points (1 win, 3 ties), Ponomariov with 4 points (1 win, 1 loss, 1 tie)  and with Vallejo Pons with 1 point (1 tie, 3 losses).

The game opened in the Queen’s Gambit Accepted and was fairly equal until Anand doubled his rooks on the d-file on the 20th move and let him dominate the match until black resigned.
