India’s R Vaishali made India proud after winning a “Gold” with 8 points from nine rounds in Asian Chess Blitz Championship held in Chengdu, China.

She won seven games and posted two draws in the nine-round Blitz event to grab the first position.

Vaishali drew her final round game against Uurtsaikh Uuriintuya of Mongolia to finish half-a-point ahead of Iran’s Sarasdat Khademalsharieh and clinch the gold medal.

The Chennai player with an ELO rating of 2203 had finished third in the Asian Championship event on Friday. Her team-mate Padmini Rout finished at 3rd place with a last round win against China’s Yuxin Song.

The other Indians, however, couldn’t make much of an impression with Soumya (5.5 points) taking the 12th spot and Mary Ann Gomes, who finished fourth in the classical format, settled for the 16th spot.

In the open section, Tamil Nadu’s Vr Aravind Chithambaram finished fourth with a tally of seven points. He won six games, drew two and lost one.

 M R Lalith Babu (6.5 points), Vidit Santhosh Gujrathi (6.5 points) and B Adhiban (6 points) finished seventh, eighth and 10th respectively.

Blitz Chess, Know the Sport :

Blitz or Fast chess (also known as speed chess) is a variation of chess in which each side is given less time to make a move than under normal tournament time controls. This means that each player will have less than 60 minutes at his or her disposal, based on a 60-move game, and sometimes considerably less than this.

Earlier, Vidit & Vaishali won the Bronze on friday at Asian Chess Championship (Classic Event) & in the process qualify for the World Cup 2017 to be held in Georgia in September.
