52nd National Junior Open: CM Arjun Adireddy (TEL) and Manas Gaikwad (MAH) - both players won their games with the black pieces

Alekhya - Arjun

Position after 56...Rg3

After a back and forth battle, it was Alekhya Mukhopadhyay (WB, 2149) who made the last mistake against CM Arjun Adireddy (TEL, 2057). It was incredibly difficult to find 57.Qc1 which not only provides support to the a3-pawn after Rb3+, but also controls the c-file to prevent the black queen invading from there. 57.Be2?? Rb3+ 58.Ka2 Qc7 59.Rf1 Rc3 and White's position started falling apart.

Girls: Dhanashree - Ishvi

Position after 12...Qd7?

Ishvi Aggarwal (HAR, 1748) made a paltry mistake 12...Qd7? 13.Bxf6 gxf6 14.Nxe5 dxe5 15.Qxh5 exd4 16.Nf3 and White eventually went on to win the game.

Dhanashree Khairmode (MAH) defeated Ishvi Aggarwal (HAR) to become one of the three leaders 7.5/9
