Chennai: Maharashtras Aditya Udeshi scored an upset win over Grandmaster Aleksandr Shimanov of Russia in the second round of the 50th SDAT-Ramco World Junior Chess Championships, here, on Wednesday.
Handling white side of a Sicilian Taimanov with aplomb, Aditya attacked with vigour on the centre as well as on the kingside. A vain attempt by the Russian GM to counter Adityas well-placed king on the queenside was easily thwarted by the Indian who scripted a memorable win in 31 moves.
Aditya, who has a rating of 2348, is tipped to be the next Indian IM in the making.
In another top board tie, another Indian SL Narayanan outplayed Grandmaster B Adhiban from white side of a Sicilian Najdorf. (PTI)
