Pragga (12 yr old) is really doing well in this tournament. He has an upper hand today too and trying to break the fortress of his opponent Nils (2653) to get one more good win. If he wins, he'll be tied with Anand, Nakamura, Caruana with 4.5 points. Just behind Carlsen (5.5) and sole second placed Vidit(5.0).
Talking about Vidit, he is also have in g a nice tournament. I guess he might play Carlsen tomorrow. Seems like Pragga and Vidit are the future of Indian chess for coming years.

Update: Pragga had to settle for a draw.
