Known to rise back after every debacle, Viswanathan Anand made another strong comeback defeating Hikaru Nakamura of the United States in the fourth round of the Zurich Chess Classic.

Trailing Nakamura by a full point at the start of the contest, Anand knew he had to win to go ahead and the Indian came up with a brilliant game on all counts to floor Nakamura.

Under a unique points system that gives two points for a victory and one for a draw in classical games, Anand took his tally to six points and is now a full point ahead of Nakamura.

The other games of the fourth round were drawn. Vladimir Kramnik signed peace with his Russian colleague Sergey Karjakin while Levon Aronian of Armenia achieved the same result against Fabiano Caruana of Italy.

Kramnik holds the third spot on four points. Aronian, Karjakin and Caruana have three points apiece.
