Incredible 10-year-old (1733) Beats A Grandmaster (2575)

 

We all love upsets! That too when a young boy beats a seasoned grandmaster. Souhardo Basak beat GM Adam Tukhaev in the first round of Bhopal International Grandmaster event 2017. Souhardo, a shy 10-year-old from Kolkata rated just 1733 played a fine game to get the better of the Ukrainian GM who has won many big events in the past. Indian chess is blessed that it has four extremely strong tournaments lined up one after the other starting with Bhopal. It's a great exposure for our youngsters. Souhardo proved it in the first round. After beating a 2575 rated GM your confidence is propelled to an altogether different level!
