NEW DELHI : Indian Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand lost 2-3 against Hungary's Peter Leko to suffer a fifth straight defeat in the Legends of Chess online tournament. Anand won the first game in the best-of-four contest in what was a good start but the next two games were drawn before Leko won the fourth to level the proceedings.

The Hungarian then claimed the Armageddon (a tie-breaker) to ensure Anand remained winless and at the bottom of the points table in the USD 150,000. The former world champion had earlier lost to Peter Svidler, Magnus Carlsen, Vladimir Kramnik and Anish Giri. He is making his maiden appearance on the Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour. IANS
