The tournament is expected to become more exciting from this point, as already in the Open, the event has only two co-leaders. Spectators and fan can expect a bloodbath in the coming days as the best young talents in the sport of chess fight to achieve global supremacy at the KIIT University in Bhubaneswar.

Parham Maghsoodloo (2576) was held to a draw by Filipino IM Paulo Bersamina (2402)

Anish Gandhi (2156)

Anish Gandhi, whose name was picked up by none other by the World Champion Magnus Carlsen in this tweet continued his sterling form, as he defeated IM Seyed Mousavi (2422) of Iran.

Anyway, Anish was not as peaceful in the third round. White has more than one ways to take the advantage.
