It was a great evening for Indian Chess as Vidit Santhosh Gujrathi and R Vaishali in open and women’s section respectively. It was the ninth and final round of Asian Chess Championship.

In the women’s event, Vaishali scored a crucial win with black pieces over Ngueyen Thi Thanh An of Vietnam to take her tally to 6.5 points and the third place and securing the Bronze medal. She is just 16 years old and has previously secured Girls’ World Youth Chess Championship for Under-14s and Under-12s.

Vaishali rated 2272 by ELO showed her classic skills and presence of mind in the previous match also when she was taking on the 5th seed Pham Le Thao Nguyen of Vietnam and then moved on to the second position but then now she had to settle for the Bronze.

In the open category, Vidit Santhosh Gujrathi with an ELO rating of 2687 drew the match with the opponent Yangi Yu to finish with 6.5 points. It was an impressive display of intelligence as Gujrathi managed to come in top 3 positions from 8th position yesterday. He is just 22 years old and he attained the tittle of Grandmaster when he was just 18 yrs old, Gujrathi is said to be one of the best player from india.

By this performance of young guns we can say that the future of Indian chess is in safe hands.

Other than this Aravindh Chithamabaram was looking promising yesterday as he stopped the 2nd seed to retain his second position but as the round progressed he slipped down 15 places to end the tournament at 17th place.
