Note that there are certain problems looking up names. Anand beats Kasparov by 3:1 because Anand is a much more common name in India than Kasparov in Russia. Use full names instead: Garry Kasparov, Vishy Anand plus Viswanathan Anand. Also hurry up if you want to try this little game. Google frowns on the flippant use of its search engines and has been closing down such entertainment sites.
