Sandes, Norway: World champion Viswanathan Anand remains a contender for the title despite being 1.5 points behind the leader as he will take on the lowest-ranked players in the remaining two rounds of the Norway Chess 2013 Super Tournament here.

Anand started with two draws and a fine victory against arch-rival Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria.

A loss in the fourth round pulled him back a little but then tormenting tournament leader Sergey Karjakin of Russia and following that up with a crushing win against Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaijan has put the Indian in the joint third spot.
