Anand in 2800 club

New Delhi: Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand joined the ELO 2800 club in the latest FIDE ratings.
Anand, who was knocking on the 2800 door for quite sometime, finally saw it happen at the Corus super Grandmasters tournament, which he won for a record fifth time in January.
The Indian ace began the event with 2792 points and gained 11 points to breach the landmark, but missed the top rank by just one point.
The top spot was vacant after the removal of world's top rated and now-retired Garry Kasparov's name from the active players' list.
