Ilamparthi A R and Sneha Halder win 32nd National under-9

by Shahid Ahmed - 26/09/2018

Ilamparthi suffered his first and only loss in the last round against Kush Bhagat of Maharashtra. However, that did not change anything for him, as Ilamparthi had already become champion after the conclusion of 10th round. Sneha drew her final round game against Indira. She needed Suhaani to win for her to become champion and that is what exactly happened. Mayank Chakraborty, Yash Bharadia and Kush Bhagat all three of them scored 9.0/11 and they secured 2nd, 3rd and 4th position respectively. In the girls section, Suhaan Lohia scored 9.0/11 and finished 2nd, while Indira Priyadharshini Subbu scored 8.5/11 and secured 3rd position. Photo: Shahid Ahmed

Ilamparthi and Sneha are the best in National under-9

The champions of 32nd National under-9 : Sneha Halder and Ilamparthi A R

Ilamparthi had a dream run...

...until the last round when Kush Bhagat became the only one to defeat the champ. His 'What' on his wrist echoes his game in the last round

White just played 14.Qe1. Find out why it is a mistake?

CM Kush Bhagat's biggest takeaway from this tournament would be to defeat the champion in his category, Ilamparthi A R.

Here is a game annotated by the champion Ilamparthi himself:

Mayank Chakraborty of Assam played a sharp game in the final round and checkmated his opponent in just 34 moves

Mayank got an early advantage when his opponent made a mistake in Nimzo-Indian Defence. However, he allowed his opponent Aakash G of Tamil Nadu to escape with a compensation of two pawns for a Knight. In a few moves, he managed to trap Aakash's Bishop and eventually checkmate him in another 10 moves.

Yash Bharadia of Rajasthan won his last round game comfortably and 3rd position

Sneha played safe and drew her final round game against...

...Indira Priyadharshini Subbu of Tamil Nadu who dominated the early half of the tournament

Suhaani Lohia's devastating attack in the opening finished the game in a miniature of only 20 moves

Youngest boy in the open category was 5-years old Madhvendra Pratap Sharma of Madhya Pradesh. He scored 3.0/11
