Open Chess: Deep causes big upset

India Blooms News Service

Kolkata, Dec 10 (IBNS): GM Deep Sengupta (2540) scored a major upset on Round-8 having a brilliant tactical win over top seed GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek (2734) at the Rose Valley Open International Chess Tournament being held in Kolkata.

Radoslaw suffered first defeat in this tournament, so as to first big upset caused at the hand of a player from Bengal. GM Viorel Iordachesen (2619) spoiled IM Swapnil Dholpade’s fantastic run today by beating him in a scrappy battle.

22-year boy from Nagpur needed just half point today to earn his 2nd GM norm. IM Vidit Santosh Gujrathi lost his sole lead as he today could not be able to break defense of GM Adly Ahmed.

Deep and Iordachesen joined him at the top with 6 points each after Round-8. Vidit required just one point from next round to earn his 2nd GM norm.

On Day-8 of the Rose Valley Open International Chess Tournament, organized by Alekhine Chess Club, had three very crucial games on top three boards, as the results could be turning points for three Indian aspirants, namely IM Vidit Santosh Gujrathi, GM Deep Sengupta and IM Swapnil Dholpade.

A win for anyone might take one step forward to the podium, so naturally games were significant for everyone, so as to for their respective opponent’s, GM Adly Ahmed (2607) of Egypt, GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek of Poland and GM Viorel Iordachesen (2619) of Moldavia.

In the beginning of the game today, 15th seed Deep built up slightest advantage with Najdorf open.

But he failed to capitalize this advantage with miss calculation. Radoslaw took this chance and started building pressure on him. However, Deep managed to defend well in the mid game.

In the end game, when the game was poised for a draw, Radoslaw went all out for a win and made a mistake, which Deep aptly utilized to bring cheers in the Bengal camp.

But the cheers did not long last as GM Suryasekhar Ganguly (2630) and GM Sandipan Chanda (2613) both lost their games.

This was the first loss suffered by Surya in this tournament. He lost the game at the hand of GM SP Sethuraman (2520) of Tamil Nadu. Sandipan had yet another bad day, as he surrendered full point to IM Vishnu Prasanna (2469), much rated below him.

Both Surya and Sandipan fell out of joint third position. FM Diptayan Ghosh (2425) caused an upset by holding GM Enamul Hossain (2496) of Bangladesh. WGM Nisha Mohota (2339) had good reason to smile by snatching half point from IM Akshyaraj Kore (2459), who was going through fine run in the tournament.

Former World U12 champion Sayantan Das (2312) lost to state mate IM Suvrajit Saha (2338). As full point very much needed to both the players, they opted to go for all out, instead of usual tactics to share point between state mates.

IM Sapatarshi Roy (2402) and IM Nolte Rolando (2453) shared point without much fight.
