India Blooms News Service

Kolkata, Dec 6 (IBNS): GM Dzhumaev Marat (FIDE rating 2530) of Uzbekistan continued his fine run to retain sole top position with all win record at the end of Round-4 at Rose Valley Open International Chess Tournament being held in Kolkata.

On top board overnight leader 17th seed Marat caused an upset on Thursday by beating 2nd seed Anton Korobov (2702) of Ukraine.

Super Grandmaster Korobov, who won the 2002 and this year Ukrainian Championships, was considered as one of the title contenders.

No one took Marat into consideration as an aspirant. Actually he turned upside down even with a deficit of pawn and a bishop in the mid-game.

IM Vidit Santosh Gujrathi (2527) and GM Mikhailo Oleksienko (2573) of Ukraine were jointly in the second position with 3.5 points each.

Vidit on Thursday beat his compatriot IM Narayanan Srinath (2439) and Oleksienko raised himself to 2nd position with a hard fought win over Indian GM Deepan Chakkravarthy (2487).

On Day-Four of the Rose Valley Open International Chess Tournament, organized by Alekhine Chess Club, top seed GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek (2734) was again lost valuable half point en-route to title hope.

On Thursday he was forced to share point by Indian Gm MR Venkatesh (2520).

This is certainly inspiring result for the Indian contingent. Thirteen players, along with Radoslaw Wojtaszek, GM Suryasekhar Ganguly, GM Abhijit Gupta, GM Ni Hua (2660) of China were jointly share the 3rd position with 3 points each.

“Super GM” Ni Hua stopped fine run of FM Shardul Gagare (2381) with a scrappy win after long battle.

After two wins in last two rounds, GM Suryasekhar Ganguly (FIDE rating 2630) had to content with just half point against his compatriot GM Vaibhav Suri (2494) after 35 moves.

Another Bengal GM Deep Sengupta (2540) kept his momentum what he had got with win against FM Anurag Mhamal (2370) in the 3rd round yesterday.

In the 4th round he had a encouraging win against Indian counterpart GM Sundararajan Kidambi (2434).

After three bad rounds, IM Suvrajit Saha (2338) today earned full point against lowly rated Kayastha MadanKrishna (2023) of Nepal.

Apart from Deep Sengupta and Suvrajit, Bengal players again caved back into their groove. GM Sandipan Chanda (2613) surrendered after long battle of more than four and half hours to young Maharastrian IM Swapnil Dholpade (2438).

IM Sapatarshi Roy (2402) lost the battle to IM Shyam Sundar (2484) of Tamil Nadu, IM aspirant Diptayan Ghosh (2425) concede full point to Indian GM GN Gopal (2547), WGM Mary Ann Gomes (2382) made the similar thing to Russian GM Daniil Lintchevsky (2553).

Unfortunately Mary had to play with black Pieces for the two consecutive days. However Mary and Diptayan did not surrender without giving fight.

Talented IM Arghyadip Das (2476) had an inconsistence run in the tournament as he lost to much below rated player SL Narayanan (2373).

However, WGM Nisha Mohta (2339) and FM Sayantan Das (2312) earned half point each from Pratik Patil (2185) and IM MS Tejkumar (2442) respectively. On Day-3 Bengal Brigade earned 7.5 points out of possible 9, but today they had to content with just three points.

Philippines GM Paragua Mark (2533) for the second consecutive day failed overcome Tamil hurdles. Yesterday he had to share points with IM Narayanan Srinath (2439) of Tamil Nadu.

IM K Rathnakaran (2435) frustrated him with another draw.

13-year-old prodigy Arvindh Chithabaram (2338) succumbed to GM Enamul Hossain (2496) of Bangladesh.
