Anand out of title race

World Champion Viswanathan Anand bowed out of contention for a top finish in the Bilbao Grand Slam final chess tournament after losing from a better position against Levon Aronian of Armenia in the eighth round here.

After suffering his second loss in the tournament, Anand’s number one world ranking also came under threat and unless there is a revival in fortunes of the Indian ace, he stands to lose some precious rating points as well from the tournament.
