  twinlark: That must have been difficult, losing his last round game to the winner to come second on tiebreak in the U14 World Championship.

Well done to the young man, but he must have strong and mixed feeling about his result.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: He was ahead by a point, at 9/10, but gave up a mate in one. A lot of pressure on 14-year-olds at a tournament like this.
Premium Chessgames Member
  twinlark: OMG - the poor lad.

  Jim Bartle: Here's the game, Troff-Aravindh:

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. g3 d5 4. Nf3 Be7 5. Bg2 O-O 6. O-O b6 7. cxd5 exd5 8. Nc3 Bb7 9. Ne5 c6 10. e4 dxe4 11. Nxe4 Nd5 12. Nc3 Na6 13. Nxd5 cxd5 14. Bf4 Bg5 15. Qg4 Bxf4 16. Qxf4 Nb4 17. a3 Nc6 18.

  twinlark: I guess he has the small consolation that he was totally lost by then anyway.

Not only that but after 25...Bc6, White missed a mate in 4 starting with 26. Nh6+:

I feel for Black, that was such a nervous game and he came so unstuck. Poor lad will be having nightmares about this game.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: Yes, when I took a look beyond the mate I realized he was lost many moves earlier.

  shivasuri4: Despite that last round disappointment, Aravindh gained 26.7 rating points, and will reach a career-high rating of 2338 in the December list.
