Viswanathan Anand is a chess player par excellence and a befitting World Champion. His humility is in direct contrast with his aggressive style of play, but one thing that Anand understands very clearly is that chess was his calling and not cricket. 🙂
Anand is a pitchman for AMD processors and really does well in this commercial! It is refreshing to see chess players given regard instead of being cast as an eccentric genius. Most commercials seen in the West make chess to be something abnormal or strange. In India, chess has become a national obsession… thanks to Anand. He is a credit to chess.
