2nd Indore GM Open 2024 R4: Deepan subdues Savchenko, gains early sole lead

by Shahid Ahmed - 12/01/2024

GM Deepan Chakkravarthy defeated GM Boris Savchenko to emerge sole leader 4/4 at 2nd Indore GM Open 2024. Deepan made a sound exchange sacrifice to gain two pawns and open his light square bishop's path. He converted his advantage into a win comfortably. Both GM Alexei Fedorov and IM Ameya Audi had a solitary chance each, to gain decisive advantage against their counterpart. WGM Nandhidhaa P V had a grueling battle against GM Hesham Abdelrahman (EGY). IM P Shyam Nikhil showed fine technique in the opposite color bishop endgame against GM Igor Glek (BEL). Local player, Prakhar Bajaj made the most out of his opportunity against IM Kushagra Mohan. Deepan will face the top seed Iniyan in the fifth round. Today will be the last double round of the event. Round 5 starts today at 10 a.m. IST. Photos: Satyam Vishwakarma

Eleven in the chase

Madhya Pradesh's very own Prakhar Bajaj continues his good form. He is now at 3.5/4. The sole untitled player among the pack. The teenager will face GM Hesham Abdelrahman (EGY) in the fifth round.

GM Deepan Chakkravarthy is the sole leader 4/4

Deepan - Savchenko: 1-0

GM Deepan Chakkravarthy (2422) had never beaten GM Boris Savchenko (2489) in a Classical rated game. His sole loss occurred nearly 1.5 years ago. It was time for Deepan to even the score.

Position after 30...Bb6?

White made a very nice exchange sacrifice by gaining two pawns 31.Qxb5 Nc7 32.Qxc4 Nxd5 33.exd5 White not only got two pawns but also opened his light squared bishop's path which played a key role combined with his queen and knight to win the game in another ten moves.

GM Iniyan Pa defeated Utkal Ranjan Sahoo with a nice checkmate combination in the end

Teterev - Shyam

Position after 52...Bd5

IM P Shyam Nikhil (2443) had to play 52...Bd5 to prevent his opponent, GM Vitaly Teterev (2288) from playing d5 himself and free his bishop. The opposite color seems to end up in a draw. However, White needs to find a precise defense as Black has a winning plan. Can you find out what it is?

The reigning Commonwealth Gold medalist IM P Shyam Nikhil showed fantastic technique in the opposite color bishop endgame against GM Vitaly Teterev

Prakhar - Kushagra

Position after 28.Rcd1

Black needed to go 28...Nc7 immediately to continue the fight. 28...cxb4 29.Rxd6 Nc5 30.Rxd7 Nxa6 31.Ree7 the seventh rank invasion is complete and Black can no longer save the game.

Prakhar Bajaj made the most out o his opponent's miscalculation in the endgame
