As a child, Vladimir Kramnik studied in the chess school established by Mikhail Botvinnik. In 2000 he won the Classical World Championship from Garry Kasparov and then won the unified title when he defeated Veselin Topalov in 2006. He relinquished the title in 2007 to the incumbent World Champion, Viswanathan Anand.} 1. e4 c5 { Vishwanathan Anand ("Vishy" to his fans) has been the World Champion since 2007, and was FIDE World Champion from 2000-2002. He was born in 1969 in Mayiladuthurai, a small town in southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu, but grew up in Chennai. His mother taught him to play chess at age 6. As an Indian and as an Asian chess player he blazed a trail with a number of firsts, including in 1984 becoming the youngest Indian to earn the title of IM (aged fifteen), becoming the youngest ever Indian Champion at 16, becoming in 1987 the first Indian to win the World Junior Championship and India’s first grandmaster, and becoming India’s (and Asia’s) first World Champion. He is also the first World Champion since Robert James Fischer and the second since Max Euwe who did not originate from one of the countries of what was the Soviet bloc. Moreover, he is the first and only player to have won the putative world championship via knockout tournament, round robin tournament and traditional match play.} 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5.
