We knew it was just a matter of time!

Anand deserves to be the World Champion. (Fortunately history did not repeat itself. In 1995, Anand was playing the PCA Candidates World Championship Match. He was leading the round but Kamsky turned the tables against Anand. Anand did not even get to win in the  blitz round. )

Game 11(black to play): Just look at the tripled pawns! Kramnik is fighting desperately for a win. But even a 1500-rated rookie player like me knows, its all over for Black!

With this victory, the Anand has emerged to be the World Champion in all Chess formats, classical, rapid, lightning, blitz, blindfold. Well, perhaps “Correspondence chess” remains!!

The final position:
