Jun-27-18  jith1207: Fun game. He's on a world tour to achieve required GM norms and become youngest grand master. This tournament should give a GM norm, hope he gets soon.
Premium Chessgames Member This is the game that clinched his 3rd norm.

The headlines read <Brilliant Chennai Boy Creates History, Becomes World’s 2nd Youngest Grandmaster!>

Jun-27-18  jith1207: Oops.. I'm late to the news. He's has become GM, so understand why this game has got to be GOTD so quick. Karjakin still keeps his record, but congrats to Praggnananda on his achievement at the tender age of little less than 11 years.

You just knew this Pun was coming!

Jun-27-18  jith1207: Thanks, <CG>. Feels good reading this news in Chennai.
Jun-27-18  jith1207: **little less than 13 years.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Black has won all 7 games in the database with 10...Qf6, yet another reason the Archangelsk has its adherents--it's the most violent rebellion vs. the Ruy Lopez. Since Praggnanandhaa has 2 of the wins, perhaps some day we'll name 10...Qf6 in his honor.
Jun-27-18  Ironmanth: A tremendous slashing attack. An incredible talent from an amazing program! Many warm and authentic wishes for huge success to this wonderful prodigy. Namaste, Pragga!

  OrangeTulip: Praggnanandhaa uses his Bishops as deadly daggers. What an honour for my countryman Pruijssers to play this game!:)

  offramp: For simplicity he is known as Squatter Madras.
Jun-27-18  Isilimela: Mate from a clear blue sky if you look at the position round about move 26 or so!
Jun-27-18  posoo: POOISERS is not strong and UVRUMP is not FUNEY.

What are you on about?

What has his name got to do with Derek And Clive's Squatter And The Ant?

Really poor joke, even for you.

  Breunor: According to Stockfish, white starts to go downhill with 14 Bb3; instead c4 holds even. I suspect it both defends the bishop and prevents the discovered attack on the queen with 14 ....... dxc3.

Things went worse with 37 Bxg3. 37 Bd5 keeps things from getting lost (but doesn't reverse the bad position).

I do understand your frustration, Edwin.

I think that you are totally right. I made a mistake and I apologise for that.

It is a game chNGER AND i changed that game wrongly. Did I accidentally have Caps Lock on?

Who knows. No one knows.

All I can do is try to sellotape my love for chess to my love for Is that possible?

Yes. It is.

Thanks for that article <cg>. I thought he had clinched with a round to go, but didn't know of that min. rating requirement.

This is his R8 game (analysis). The rest of his games are available on chess24.

I uploaded this game into database recently, and included a link to the chess24 site in the submission.
