Chennai: Victory eluded him yet again but defending champion Viswanathan Anand said he was relieved to eke out a draw after two losses on the trot against Magnus Carlsen in the World Chess Championship here on Monday.

"Obviously after the last two games it's nice to break this result but I was hoping to be able to press him a little but I could not manage," Anand said in a press conference after the seventh-round game here.

Carlsen, meanwhile, continued to enjoy his two points lead after the deadlock. The Norwegian now needs just two points in the next five games to become the next world champion.
