London – Indian chess legend Viswanathan Anand can fight back from losing the world crown at the 2013 London Classic quarter-finals on Saturday, according to reports.

According to the Guardian, two of the 16 Classic places went to qualifiers from the 180-player Open, which began last Saturday but the small print sparked some protests.

On paper the qualification process was a great chance for talented amateurs; in reality it was highly elitist, the report said.

A blitz play-off among tieing players would have been fairer, but the moral argument became redundant when only two players, seeds one and three, scored 4/4 to gain the coveted Classic spots, the report added.

Anand recently lost his world championship crown to Magnus Carlsen in India.
