Chhattisgarh CM Trophy GM Masters R2: Arjun Tiwari is on a roll

by Shahid Ahmed - 21/09/2022

Arjun Tiwari defeated the second consecutive IM he faced at Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Trophy GM Masters 2022. He certainly possesses an IM-like strength. His peak rating has been 2354. Thus, these two win is no surprise at all. Double IM-norm holder, FM Aaryan Varshney drew with Mongolia no.3 GM Tsegmed Batchuluun. WIM Mahalakshmi M held IM Nubairshah to a draw. 21 players are at 2/2. 44th Olympiad individual Bronze medalist, WGM Divya Deshmukh is the sole female player to have made a perfect start. Round 3 starts today at 3 p.m. IST. Photo: Chhattisgarh Pradesh Shatranj Sangh

Aaryan Varshney splits the point with Mongolia no.3

A strong line-up means a lot of interesting matches. Utsab Chatterjee, Arjun Tiwari and Chidvilash Sai Surapaneni are the only three untitled players who are at 2/2 each.

Kushagra - Anees: 0-1

IM Kushagra Mohan (2431) had a complex rook ending against FM Mohamed Anees (2204).

Position after 35...Rd2

At the critical moment, White made the difficult choice of moving his king. 36.Kc1 Rxh2 and White went on to lose the game. Find out what White could have done instead to get a draw minimum.

Sammed - Arjun Tiwari: 0-1

Arjun Tiwari (2034) made an interesting thematic knight sacrifice for two pawns against IM Sammed Jaykumar Shete (2387).

Position after 20...Ndxe4

20...Ndxe4! is absolutely sound. The reason is simple 21.fxe4 Nxe4 22.Qe1 c3 23.Nd1 b4 White's pieces are cramped and even though White can take the a6-pawn 24.Bxa6 Ra8 25.Be2 Rxa2. Black's position is quite promising and he won the positional battle comfortably.
