Viswanathan Anand ended his stint with a draw against world champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway and finished ninth in the Sinquefield Cup here today. For Anand, the below-par performance with two losses and seven draws in the nine-round tournament resulted in a slip from the second spot in the Grand Chess tour standings, which will conclude at the London Chess Classic in December. Levon Aronian of Armenia expectedly won the tournament after an easy draw with Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria. Tallying an impressive six points, Aronian won three and drew six games in the event.
