The top board game between Vietnamese GM Nguyen Duc Hoa and IM Srihari L R saw the Indian star in good nick. For, Srihari inflicted a second successive defeat on GM Hoa, following his victory in the Madurai GM tournament last fortnight. The game emerged from the French opening and GM Hoa went for a big attack on Srihari’s king. Giving up his rook for a minor piece, Srihari restored the balance. Further Srihari caught the white king in the middle of the board, finishing the game in 33 moves.

This 10 round tournament carries a prize fund of Rs 20 lakhs with the winner picking up a cash award of Rs 4 lakhs along with a trophy. 60 cash prizes are awarded in this event that concludes by Sunday 7th January, 2023, after two more rounds.
