Chennai: At 42, Viswanathan Anand is the second oldest of the top ten FIDE ranked players in the world, but the reigning world chess champion today ruled out any plans of retiring.
Anand said that he has to do "informed guesswork" based on his intuition in many crucial situations and those moves turn out to be the winners.
Anand told media here that with chess not being an Olympic sport, and the process of getting it included being a very lengthy one, his playing days would be over when that happens.
Grandmaster and Asian champion Parimarjan Negi suffered a setback after drawing with Sjef Rijnaarts of Holland in the second round of the sixth edition of Leiden International chess tournament.
