Indian Grandmaster stuns World No.1

Young Indian Grandmaster R Praggnanandhaa stunned the reigning 5 times World Champion Magnus Carlsen in the eighth round of the Airthings Masters, an online rapid chess tournament.

Praggnanandhaa, the youngest player on the field, won with black pieces in 39 moves in a Tarrasch variation game early on Monday to halt Carlsen’s run of three straight wins.

The Indian Grand Master lies in joint 12th spot after eight rounds with eight points. His spectacular win over Carlsen comes after a moderate run in the earlier rounds.
