Praggnanandhaa has shown what a special player he is in rapid and blitz formats where he has beaten so many top players including Magnus Carlsen at the Champions Chess Tour. However, a question that always remained in the minds of fans was – how good is Pragg in classical chess?
Well, the 17-year-old put that question to rest as he beat the world no.2, rated 2811 – Ding Liren. Ding is in excellent form in this event as he beat Gukesh in round 1, had a great position against Maghsoodloo in round 2 and easily drew his game against Carlsen in round 3. However, Pragg managed to outplay his esteemed opponent from a position that looked like it was heading towards a draw! Brilliant play by the Indian youngster. Check out the video with analysis by IM Sagar Shah.
PS: By the time the game ended it was 1.30 a.m. on 18th of January and that made the win even more special as 18th is the 7th anniversary of ChessBase India and we had Pragg winning with close 4500 people concurrently watching it online!
