The boy who has never used an Engine!
D. Gukesh is just 14 years old, but already boasts of an astronomic Elo of 2563. What separates Gukesh from his other grandmaster colleagues and child prodigies is the fact that this youngster has never really used a chess engine for his analysis. He always likes to think for the moves on his own and has the self-confidence in him that he can find the best moves in a given position. This is the reason why it is going to be very exciting to see the young lad in action as he takes on the premium members of ChessBase Account in blitz games that will have the time control of 3 min + 2 sec increment. While Gukesh plays the games, IM Sagar Shah will commentate on them and once they are completed he will discuss it with Gukesh.
