Nihal's game at 10 p.m. will decide whether he makes his 2nd GM norm
Praggnanandhaa wasn't able to score his second GM norm in the closed Round Robin tournament in Australia. But his friend and the equally brilliant Indian talent, Nihal Sarin has a chance tonight. Nihal is playing at the London Chess Classic and has played some excellent chess to be on 6.0/8. In the last round he is up against Szymon Gumularz rated 2376. Nihal's opponent is rated 131 points below him. The 13-year-old has to score a win in order to achieve his GM norm. Will he be able to make it? Join us at 10 p.m. tonight (9th December) for the live game. Thumbnail photo: Lennart Ootes.
