Vishwanathan Anand "Vishy" - World Chess Champion 2010

Vishwanathan Anand "Vishy" is the World Chess Champion once again, he became the first player in chess history to have won the World Championship in three different formats: Knockout, Tournament, and Match..

Prior to the World Chess Championship 2010, Anand, who had booked on the flight Frankfurt-Sofia on April 16, was stranded due to the cancellation of all flights following the volcano ash cloud from Eyjafjallajökull. Anand asked for a three day postponement, which the Bulgarian organisers refused on April 19.

Anand eventually reached Sofia on April 20, after an exhausting 40-hour road journey. Consequently, the first game was delayed by one day. The match consisted of 12 games. After 11 games the score was tied at 5½-5½. Anand won game 12 on the Black side of a Queen's Gambit Declined to win the match and retain the World Championship.

He too deserves a Bharat Ratna...
