Surya qualifies for world meet

Calcutta: Surya Sekhar Ganguly has qualified for next year’s world chess championship by winning the Asian zone 3.1b qualifying event in Dhaka on Sunday.

According to information received here, the city GM logged 9.5 points in the 11-round event. Surya won eight games and drew with fellow Indians GM Abhijit Kunte, GM P. Harikrishna and S. Kidambi.

Other city players — Dibyendu Barua and Neelotpal Das — have already qualified for the world meet by virtue of their performance in the Asian individual championship in Doha earlier this year.
