Viswanathan Anand's incredible winless streak continued as the world champion played out yet another draw with Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaijan to slip to the joint fifth spot at the Chess Grand Slam final in Bilbao, Spain.
In a dramatic turn of events in the highest prize money tournament, overnight leader Magnus Carlsen of Norway was beaten by Vassily Ivanchuk of Ukraine while Veselin Topalov of Bulgaria too found his nemesis in Levon Aronian of Armenia.
With two of the highest ranked players in the standings going down, the field was thrown open but it was of no help to Anand who is still looking for his first victory here.
