2nd Indore GM Open 2024 R5-6: Fedorov emerges sole leader, Deepan in pursuit

by Shahid Ahmed - 13/01/2024

GM Alexei Fedorov is the new sole leader 5.5/6 at 2nd Indore GM Open 2024. He defeated IM Ratnakaran K and GM Hesham Abdelrahman (EGY) in Round 5 and 6 respectively. The veteran GM is followed by GM Deepan Chakkravarthy, IM Arash Tahbaz (IRI) and GM Boris Savchenko at 5/6 each. There are 16 players including 13 Indians at 4.5/6 each. FM Goutham Krishna H and FM Kashish Manoj Jain are the only non-GM/IM among them. Deepan will face Fedorov inevitably in the seventh round. IM Ameya Audi lost an exciting game against IM Arash in the fifth round. The former should have won that game ideally. Round 7 starts today at 2 p.m. IST. Photos: Satyam Vishwakarma

Round 5: Deepan draws, Ameya suffers a tough loss

GM Iniyan Pa (2515) and GM Deepan Chakkravarthy (2422) had a tepid draw.

It piqued the interest among a lot of players and...

...Madhya Pradesh's first IM Akshat Khamparia also

IM Ameya Audi (2385) launched a crushing attack against IM Arash Tahbaz (IRI, 2425).

Ameya - Arash

Position after 16.Bxh6!

The attack that White had started with 16.Bxh6! ideally should have yielded him a full point. In reality, it didn't. 16...Bxf3 Black had to trade the bishop with knight first, else gxh6 runs into Nf6+. 17.gxf3 Qxd4 18.Rad1 Qb6 19.Bg5 Qe6 20.Bxe7 Qxe7 21.Nf6+ gxf6 22.Kh1 Qe6 23.Rg1+ Kh8 24.Rg4 Rg8 25.Rh4+ Kg7 26.Rg1+ Kf8 27.Rxg8+ Kxg8 28.Qh7+ Kf8 29.Qh8+ Ke7 30.Qxa8 Bxf2

Position after 30...Bxf2

Now White needed to exploit Black's weak back-rank 31.Rh8 and make some checkmate threats. Instead, 31.exf6+ Qxf6 removed the shield which was protecting White's vulnerable king too. The complex nature of the position eventually dissipated White's advantage and Black turned things around in his favor to win the game.

Round 6: Fedorov gains sole lead, Ilamparthi strikes

GM Alexei Fedorov (2457) defeated GM Hesham Abdelrahman (EGY, 2424) comfortably to gain sole lead 5/6. IM Ilamparthi A R won against GM Duc Hoa Nguyen (VIE, 2322) to move to 4.5/6.

Ilamparthi - Duc Hoa

Position after 19...Kf8

What is it White needed to do immediately after 19...Kf8 ? He did it after 20.Ne2 Rd5 and the effect was less.
