  1. A miracle save🔥🔥🔥🔥.after behind 2 pawns against current world 3rd player,and saving the game wow.just wow.this draw equal to a win for him.good luck for next rounds,and to all indian players.

    Never give up until it completely lost.great come back.

  2. I think Nihal is one and only Indian player who has all the makings of a future world champion. I also have very high expectations from Pragg and Gukesh. I don't see Senior players like Vidit, Hari and adhiban have any chance to enter world top 10. I don't think they could even crack top 15 for that matter. They can’t seem to keep up the momentum to excel on the world stage. Vishy has been India’s top-ranked player for most of the past three decades now. He is the only World champion India has ever produced. It'll be hard to find someone to fill his shoes when he retires.
