World Chess Championship : 6th Game : Anand Wins

World Chess Championship : 6th Game India's Viswanathan Anand has taken a commanding lead over Russian challenger Vladimir Kramnik in the 2008 World Chess Championship in Bonn, Germany.

Kramnik conceded defeat on the 47th move of the sixth game on Tuesday.

Anand's third win gives him a 4.5-1.5 lead over Kramnik in the 12-game match. The other three games were draws.
Kramnik, who lost his title to Anand last year, now has little chance of digging himself out of the hole with only six games to go - three of them with white pieces. That means the defending champion can easily keep drawing in the remaining games, making it highly unlikely that Kramnik will be able to reclaim the world title.
