MPL 34th National U-12 R3-4: Aadhya Jain stuns top seed Shubhi Gupta
Aadhya Jain (DEL) defeated the top seed of the Girls event, Shubhi Gupta (UP) in Round 4 of MPL 32nd National Under-12 Chess Championship. Shubhi was unable to realize her advantage in a complex position. Her exchange sacrifice turned out to be inaccurate as her opponent returned the exchange in the next few moves before going into a winning major piece endgame. Raghav V (TN) held the top seed of the Open section Arjun Adireddy (TEL) to a draw in the same round. Six players in the Open and five in the Girls are at 100% score 4.0/4. Round 5 starts today at 10:00 a.m. IST today. Photo: Saishyam Srikanth
Raghav draws with Arjun Adireddy
Ethan Vaz (Goa), Kushagra Jain (MAH), Aansh Nandan Nerurkar (MAH), Sadbhav Rautela (UTT), Md. Reyan (BIH) and Haridev S (TN) in the Open, Kalyani Sirin (KER), Prishita Gupta (DEL), Sherali Pattnaik (UTT), Aadhya Jain (DEL) and Aadya Gupta (DEL) in the Girls, are in the lead with a score of 4.0/4 each.
Open Round 3: Mithiran - Aakash: 0-1
Mithiran A (TN, 1328) was completely winning against National Under-9 2019 champion Aakash G (TN, 1611).
White has a devastating attack on the kingside. He only needs to prevent the Nbxa2# threat which is exactly what he overlooked. 26.Rxf7 Nbxa2# is how the game ended. Instead 26.bxc3 Rxc3 27.Qh6 Rxc2+ 28.Kd1 would have been completely winning for White.
Round 4: Ethan - Adharsh: 1-0
Ethan Vaz (Goa, 1772) seized his opportunity against Adharsh K (TN, 1487). The latter made a positional mistake in the middlegame.
22...Qd7 is a mistake. Find out why.
Round 3 Girls: Nihira - Kalyani: 0-1
Nihira Koul (MAH, 1183) had an opportunity to draw the game against Kalyani Sirin (KER, 1434) in the pawn endgame.
68.Ke2 Kf6 69.Kd2 Kg5 70.c4 bxc4 and White went on to lose the game. What could have White done differently to save the game?
Round 4: Shubhi - Aadhya: 0-1
Shubhi Gupta (UP, 1610) made some questionable positional choices. Her opponent Aadhya Jain (DEL, 1234) capitalized them all. Eventually the top seed decided to give up an exchange to gain initiative which actually gave her opponent an advantage.
The position is certainly complex. 37.exd4 c4 38.g5 would have been better for White. 37.Rxd3 exd3 38.e4 Qc6 39.Qxd3 Rxd6 40.exd6 Qxd6+ 41.e5 Qc7 now Black is completely winning because her central passed pawns are much stronger than White's pawns on the wing.
