New Delhi (News 1st); India’s youngest ever Grandmaster D Gukesh suffered a crushing defeat against Sri Lanka’s Ranidu Dilshan Liyanage in the second round of the 19th Delhi International Open chess tournament on Wednesday (23).
It was a bad day for Gukesh, when nothing went right. Playing a French defence, the Indian held a comfortable position, but converting into a full point was not easy.
As the game progressed, Gukesh found it difficult as he was looking for a resounding victory.
Ranidu Liyanage maintained himself in the game, keeping the situation calm for a long period of time and later started through a seventh-ranked attack in the rook and minor piece endgame.
