Ilamparthi wins WR Chess Juniors U-14 Boys and Blitz 2023

by Shahid Ahmed - 27/02/2023

The reigning World Under-14 Open champion, Ilamparthi A R won WR Chess Junior Under-14 Boys with a perfect 5/5. He also won the Blitz event. These triumphs came 11 days after he became India's latest International Master at 21st Rochefort Chess Festival Masters 2023. Ilamparthi also got trained by the former world championship challenger, the legendary GM Boris Gelfand and Germany no.1 GM Elisabeth Paehtz along with other participants of the junior tournament. He also got an opportunity to witness WR Chess Masters action live in action. We all hope he soon becomes a GM and strong enough to participate in the Masters events.
