World champion Viswanathan Anand of India ended the win-less draught by defeating Grandmaster Gawain Jones of England in the fifth round of London Chess Classic in progress here.

Under pressure to score a victory, Anand outclassed Jones and finally recorded a win after 17 Classical Chess games.

Magnus Carlsen of Norway continued with his top form to beat Michael Adams of England. Vladimir Kramnik accounted for Luke Mcshane to complete the English rout in the fifth round while American Hikaru Nakamura coasted to a win against the world's best woman player Judit Polgar of Hungary.
