Praggu wins, joins Iran’s Aryan in lead

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport -

Mum­bai: In­dia’s hopes in the Un­der-18 Open bright­ened as R Prag­gnanand­haa out­classed com­pa­triot P Iniyan in the highly-an­tic­i­pated bat­tle be­tween two In­dian Grand Masters in the World Youth Chess Cham­pi­onship here on Wed­nes­day.

Play­ing black, Iniyan opted for the Pirc De­fence, which was eas­ily coun­tered by Prag­gnanand­haa, forc­ing him into in­ac­cu­ra­cies in the open­ing it­self.

Prag­gnanand­haa kept in­creas­ing his ad­van­tage with ev­ery move and duly emerged vic­to­ri­ous on move 38.
