Sharjah Masters 2018: Adhiban in Superman mode!

by Sagar Shah - 15/04/2018

After a lacklustre start to the year at the Tata Steel Masters 2018 B. Adhiban has powered his way back to the top and shown to the world why exactly he is one of the finest chess players of India. He did well at the National Team Championships in February, won the Reykjavik Open in March and is now in superb form at the Sharjah Masters 2018. In the fourth round he beat his 2700+ opponent Yuri Kryvoruchko with a scintillating attack. Check out this special game!

Adhiban's win against Kryvoruchko, who is rated 2703 was an amazing one! The Indian GM won in just 21 moves with a scintillating attack against the white king! Have a look at the game and see how Adhiban mounts the attack:

In the previous round Adhiban played a very nice game to beat the young talent Javokhir Sindarov:

Sethuraman is currently the leader of the tournament with 4.0/4 along with Parham Maghsoodloo and Eltaj Safarli

Adhiban was the winner in 2017, can he repeat his success again?
