India’s Erigaisi wins title in Armenia


Share post:

Indian Grandmaster Arjun Erigaisi came up with another superb performance to clinch the title after a final round draw against local hopeful Manual Petrosyan in the Stepan Avagyan memorial chess tournament that concluded Jermuk, Armenia.

Arjun, the highest rated player here, tallied 6.5 points out of a possible nine in the 10-player round-robin tournament.

The Indian remained unbeaten throughout the tournament bagging as many as four victories besides five draws. The final round was only relevant for academic interest as Arjun had won the tournament with one round to spare.

The Hyderabad-based player enjoyed 1.5 points lead coming in to the final day and drew quite easily with black against Petrosyan. The victory here also meant that Arjun’s steady climb continued and he is now at 2778 in live rating points, taking him to World No. 4 ranking behind Magnus Carlsen of Norway and American duo of Hikaru Nakamura and Fabiano Caruana.
