by Shahid Ahmed - 23/03/2022

IM Krishna Teja N scored an unbeaten 8.5/9 and finished a half point ahead of the competition to win Masthanaiah All India Rapid Rating Open 2022. His only draw was against Sooriya B Y in the fourth round. Four players scored 8.0/9 - FM Syed Anwar Shazuli, FM Sekar B, GM Laxman R R and Surendran N. They were placed second to fifth according to the tie-breaks. Krishna won ₹100000 cash, Runner-up Shazuli earned ₹30000 and Sekar received ₹20000 cash as their respective prize. Total prize fund of the tournament was ₹400000. The next event by the same organizer will have ₹500000 prize fund slated to take place on 9th and 10th July 2022. Photo: Masthanaiah Chess World 1978

Four players score 8.0/9

Both IM Krishna Teja N and FM J Ramakrishna were at 7.5/8 heading into the final round. Whoever won the game between the leaders, would have won the tournament as there was no one else who could catch up with them. Krishna defeated a must-win game and won the tournament. A draw would have left things to chance as Krishna's tie-break score was less but luckily for him it did not make a difference as he won the game and the tournament too.
