Neelash and Samriddhaa win 2nd West Bengal State under-17

by Shahid Ahmed - 01/06/2019

IM Neelash Saha and Samriddhaa Ghosh win 2nd West Bengal State under-17 2019. Both won their maiden State under-17 title emphatically scoring 6.5/7. Neelash won his second state championship in consecutive months as he won State Blitz last month while Samriddha bounced back after unsuccessful defence of her State Women's crown and finished a full point. CM Aronyak Ghosh also finished at 6.5/7 but due to a better tie-break score, Neelash edged ahead and won the championship. Newly crowned National Schools under-17 girls champion Diya Chowdhury scored 5.5/7 and finished at 2nd position among the girls. Photo: Shahid Ahmed
