Indian Chess History @ Tromso!

Indian Chess Team @ the Tromso Chess Olympiad - In the Reigning World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen’s Country, Norway! -  created history by clinching the ‘BRONZ’, a FIRST for any Indian Chess Team @ the Chess Olympiad, on the eve of Indian Independence Day!

Indian Team consisting of Parimarjin Negi (6.5/10), Sethuraman (7.5/10), K.Sasikiran (7.5/10), B.Adhiban (7.5/11) & Lalith Babu (2/3) did a wonderful job for the country on the eve of 68th Indian Independence Day by winning the ‘BRONZ’! It also becomes wonderful as the Indian Team found itself on the podium for the first time, as the presence of the Top 2 players from India - former World Champion Viswanathan Anand & World 26 P. Harikrishna - was conspicuous by their absence!

On a day when China annexed the Olympiad chess gold medal, for the first time ever, India continued grandly from where they paused on Round 10, where they handed Germany their first team defeat of the event, winning 2.5-1.5 on the strength of GM Krishnan Sasikiran’s victory with the black pieces over Liviu-Dieter Nisipeanu.

India captured the bronze crushing Uzbekistan 3.5-0.5. Without losing a match in the last 7 rounds, the 19th-seeded Indian open team tied for the second-third place with Hungary, Russia and Azerbaijan for silver/bronze medal. On a better tie-breaker score, Hungary clinched the silver and India the bronze ahead of Russia, Armenia and several other higher-rated teams.

It is also to be noted that three Indians, Sethuraman, Sasikiran and Adhiban remained undefeated. India won seven matches, lost one and drew three for this excellent showing. Krishnan Sasikiran won 2 medals for India; he won the silver medal for his 7.5/10 performance, on the third board, as well as the team bronze.

Final Standing:-

Open: 1 China (gold) 19; 2-5 Hungary (silver), India (bronze), Russia, Azerbaijan 17 each; 6-11. Ukraine, Cuba, Armenia, Israel, Spain, Belarus 16 each.
                     
Girls: 1 Russia (gold) 20; 2-3. China (silver), Ukraine (bronze) 18 each; 4-6 Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan 17 each; 7-9 Poland, USA, Germany 16 each; 10-18. India, Romania, France, Spain, Bulgaria, Netherlands, Mongolia, Slovakia, Lithuania 15 each.

Anand Wins Candidates 2014!

5 Time World Champion Viswanathan Anand of India shut his distracters’ & critics’ (Including those of the NOISY’ Kasparov & company!) ever gaping mouths ‘once again’ with a sterling performance @ the Candidates 2014, in Siberia, Russia winning it with a round to spare!


Winning the Candidates in Russia, the Indian Chess Legend will take on the Reigning World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway to whom he gave away his crown in a platter, last year (2013), due to the World Of ‘Ugly’ Chess Politics & Tactics!


Anand won the Candidates with a round to spare & without even a single defeat SHOWS What Was His Condition (MADE/CREATED by the Conmen Of Chess!) as he defended his crown back in 2013 against a Much ‘Noisily’ Propped Up Magnus Carlsen & lost it without a win, that too a couple of rounds to spare! And, who doesn’t know that ‘The Noise’ in the Chess World ‘ALWAYS’ comes from none other than the ‘NOISE MACHINE’ Kasparov!


As Chess GM Project pointed out in ‘a couple of articles’ written in that ‘Grey Occasion Of Chess History’, it was some sort of a Totally Different & Much Subdued Anand the Chess World saw in his crown defence, in Chennai! And, everybody (Including the NOISY’ Kasparov & company, ofcourse!) ‘DECLARED SCIENTIFICALLY’ the decline of the Indian Legend! Noisy Chess Patriarchs rushed to write requiems taking SMART advises from NOISY’ Kasparov & company who always presented Anand in very poor light all across his chess life!


Now, once again, Anand has come out of the ‘Noisy Death Vale’ (Where the Mighty Noise Machine Kasparov is the king!!!) as the phoenix and proved the Noisy Doubters, ONCE AGAIN, WHOLESOMELY WRONG! Chess GM Project Congratulates Viswanathan Anand on this great occasion & wishes him all the best in his forth coming World Championship Title Challenge!

  
“Congratulations……Anand!”
                 &
        “All The Best..!”
