9th Parsvnath International Open Chess Tournament

Sumit Grover shocks Grandmaster Avigdor Bykhovsky

New Delhi (09 Jan 2011): In major upset, young Sumit Grover of Jammu & Kashmir stunned Russian Grandmaster Avigdor Bykhovsky in the third round of the 9th Parsvnath International Open Grandmasters Chess Tournament at Ludlow Castle Sports Complex here on Sunday. Apart from Bykhovsky, all the other top ranked players got little breathing time after two rounds of accelerated pairings as they registered comfortable victories over lower rated opponents in the third round.

The star of the day was Jammu youngster Sumit Grover as he made mockery of the rating difference of 384 points to upstage Bykhovsky, rated 2428. Playing white side of Volga Gambit opening, Grover uprooted the defence of his fancied rival in just 30 moves.

Meanwhile Indian Grandmasters Parimarjan Negi, Abhijeet Gupta and Arun Prasad maintained their winning momentum along with top seed Alexander Areshchenko, Slovenian Grandmaster Lenic Luka and Mikhailo Oleksienko of Ukraine with clean slate. Negi beat Akash PC Iyer while Abhijeet and Arun Prasad got better off Ahmed Feroz of Bangladesh and N Surendran. Areschchenko had an easy day in the office against Kerala youngster S L Narayanan and Lenic outwitted Kapil Lohana.
