It was another easy day for the higher seeds at The Telegraph Schools Chess meet at the JRD Tata Sports Complex here today. After two rounds, 44 players have a clean slate with two points. They are followed by a quartet with 1.5 points apiece.

No. 1 Rohan Vijay Shandilya of S.R. Singh School (Munger) faced some resistance from Ankur Verma. Shandilya struck back to wrap up the game in 43 moves.

Bihar state senior champion and second seed Pratik Sengupta, playing black, had an easy time against Anshuman Choudhary of DBMS School. Sengupta, of English Medium School Chakradharpur, won in just 19 moves.

Third seed Abhishek Das of Bharat Seva Ashram School defeated Anup Raj of St Mary’s English School in an irregular king’s pawn opening. Exploiting his opponent’s lack of knowledge in opening, Das wrapped up the game in 41 moves.

Sudipto Dasgupta of DAV Public School, Bistupur, won easily over Aparajit Ranjan. In a King’s pawn opening Ranjan, playing white, made a weak f3 on the second move which was exploited by Dasgupta comfortably. The latter won in 19 moves.

Akash Kusum of Motilal Nehru Public School, playing black, outclassed Ashish Kumar of DAV School. Eighth seed Ved Prakash Sinha of Ram Mohan Roy Seminary, Patna, overcame Asif Alam (St Mary’s) in 36 moves.
