Re: Asian Tour 2018

Tad disappointing because Shubhankar was in a great position at the start of the final day. But overall still a good show finishing T7 in European tour event.
So he continues to lead both European tour Race to Dubai ranking and Asian tour rankings for the year.

Re: Asian Tour 2018

Shubhankar continues to show his mettle. It was tough day for everyone with very few sub par rounds. It seems Shubhankar was doing great in managing the course until the bad bounce on 17 resulted in a double bogey. But he still managed a par round and finished on a high note with a closing birdie on...

Re: Asian Tour 2018

That was a course record in second round! Very well done! Yes, that's an amazing comeback from Shubhankar after slacking in the first nine holes on day 1. Probably his exploits from last week WGC let him put his guards down and then he woke up! Disappointing not to see too many Indians up on the lea...

Re: Vidit Santosh Gujrathi WR#28 Jan 15, 2018

With two nice victories in ongoing Tata Steel Challengers Vidit jumps to his highest ever live rating and ranking. Vidit is now #28 with rating of 2725.4. As he still have to play another 10 games, he has a good chance to improve further in this tournament and reach a new high. Update: Wins against ...

Re: Tata Steel (Corus) Chess - Masters - 2018

What a victory for Anand. He beats current world #2 Caruana in the 3rd round and joins Giri in the lead with 2.5 points. However, Adhiban is not having a good tournament as he loses in the battle of lowest rating duo in the field. This is his second loss and puts him in the bottom of the field. Vidi...

Re: Tata Steel (Corus) Chess - Masters - 2018

Four Indians are participating in the 2018 Tata Steel tournament. Anand and Adhiban are playing at the MAster's level, while Vidit and Harika are playing at Challenger level. Vidit is the highest rated and the only 2700+ player in the challenger field. Adhibhan, although lower ranked than Vidit, is ...

I live right next next to mile 0 so hopefully I can come by and cheer some of you guys (if I can identify you guys).
Thanks! If we don't see you, we'll just imagine that the loudest cheer is from you! :-)

Re: Forum members get together to play...

Going through the posts, I saw how kiddish I was claiming fake marathon results. I was 14 then guys and sorry for the discomfort caused. I don't know what I was thinking at that time but yeah I remember how childishly i used to make my timings better and fake results. Ayush, everything is already f...

I applied for London marathon lottery and the results came out today. Unfortunately not for me this time. But I registered for the Wisconsin Marathon 2018 today.

Re: Isle of Man Open - Masters 2017

Vidit held Carlsen on the top board in round 7. So he(5½) remains half point behind Carlsen(6). However, the likes of Nakamura, Caruana, and Eljanov won their game and caught up with Vidit. In round 8 Vidit now plays Eljanov Anand drew, however Pragga made a fatal move just before the time control a...

Re: Isle of Man Open - Masters 2017

Here are the pairings for some Indians in the 7th round. The big question is that can Vidit hold off Carlsen with black color. Note also the pairing between Harika and Kramnik. Twelve yr old IM Praggnanandhaa plays yet another GM, has a chance to get his first GM norm if he continues his good showin...
