Nihal Sarin wins Junior Speed Chess Championship

Post by Sin Hombre »

Blitz + bullet tournament for players aged 20 and lower. Every top junior, bar Alireza, played and Nihal emerged victorious with some dominant wins.

Beat penguin in R1: 16-8
Beat Smirnov in a closer QF: 14.5-12.5
Beat Haik in a crushing SF: 17-9
Destroyed Alexey Sarana in the finals 18-7.


Nihal continues to emerge as India's best overall chess prospect since Anand.

Excellent work!

Hmm. Better than Humpy or Harika?

Not sure I understand the question.

With chess being a mental sport/game, I do not really think of Humpy or Harika as strong players.
