Parimarjan Negi shocked, India's hope for clean sweep shattared

Article Summary   by:Robin13    
ª
 
India's hope of making a clean sweep was thwarted as top seed Parimarjan Negi was stunned by Vietnam's Ton That Nhu Tung in the penultimate round of Under-14 section of the Parsvanath Asian Youth Chess championship here today.

Nhu Tung(7) created the biggest of the tourney so far beating Negi (5) and now just needs a draw in the last round to win the crown.

In the U-12 section,defending champion S P Sethuraman(6.5) defeated last year's U-10 winner Prasana Rao (5.5) to consolidate his position.

In other sections, the Indians, however, were dominating. K Sai Nirupama (7.5), winner of U-8 girls category at Singapore last year, added one more title in her kitty as she won the U-10 Gold with one round to spare.

It is going to be a touch and go between favourite P Laxmi Sahiti (6.5) and in-form Dhyani Dave (6.5) for the Girl U-14 title.

The situation is bit favourable for Dhyani as Laxmi will be facing a tough player Bhakti Kulkarni(6) in the last round while Dhuani has easier pairing.

In U-12 girls category, four players including two Indians are tied at the top spot with six points each at the end of the eigth and penultimate round.

G Madanasri, Padmini Raut (India), Mitra Hejazipour (Iran) and Nguyen Thi Mai Hung (Vietnam) will fight it out for Gold in this category tomorrow.
