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!

Gand Mara to the little crab from the third world
Well played Pragg.
Weldone excellent performance lots of love from Pakistan
Good game analysis of beautifully played game
You just spoiled the whole game by giving your opinions. Which nobody cares
The original game is buried in your analysis and alternatives
Why is your commentary or your thoughts on the moves is so hopeless
Prag is going places❤️❤️❤️❤️
Yesterday was not a good day for 2800+ rated players
The joy of watching live is a way different 👍🏆❣️
Loved the game by pragg
missed it watching halfway yesterday but loved the end ! <3 🥺
Hans be like: " i am the first engine who beat magnus at the age of 18" 😂😂
1:40 Qa4+ check wins the knight, no?
Congratulations 👏 👏
Ding has won what Tournament ever in his life? he has high ratings by beating Chinese people in there tournaments only..he is actually not even in top 100 strongest player in the world..
Sagar your analysis is good but try to keep it short ❤️
Prag has it in him to be world champion one day… very strong end game player.
Hans Nieman also does the same
He wins in just 2 moves 😲 😮
Sahar, you are too much style
Didn't Pragg beat Wesley as well?
Love listening to Sagar. Congratulations Prag.
Everyone talking about anish beats magnus but Pragg beating Ding is much interesting
Well done pragg
We just love watching Pragg's journey to 2900 and the world champion!!! 🎓🏆 💪 🚀 🐐
Prag shot down liren with a fantastic win.
The variation you get that are not played are of 4000 level. Where do you get them? AlphaZero?
It is not the first time ,he has also beaten magnus carlsan
Ding is preparing for WCC and didn't want to disclose his c4 & d4. So he played not so familiar e4 openings and that's what I think the reason Ding lost. Anyway congrats to Pragg.
Good win by Pragg but please stop overhyping indian chess players. Big wins here and there yet none of the youngsters have consistently won against top players or won any major tournaments. Rather than celebrating every win, let them quietly go about improving their performances and start treating every big win like a normal win. Instead of feeling as they are underdogs, let them feel as if they belong with the elite and their mentality will improve. When you feel like a champion you'll play like a champion.
Congratulation to pragg ..now he gotta keep fighting and beat few more players and even try to win this event . Let's gooo ❤️🥳👏🥳✨
Your english is so bad.. irritating
Prag seems like he has been around a long time, how is he still only 17 lol.
Respect from America. Prag is impressive as are most of the young Indian players!
Congratulations pragg 👏👏👏🎉🎉🎉

He is certainly going to be 2750 + in next year
Congratulations Pragg and happy birthday ChessBase India! 🎉
