Indian chess legend Viswanathan Anand was 18 when he turned into a Grandmaster. Magnus Carlsen, the man who toppled Anand as title holder in 2013 and has been ruling from that point forward, turned into a GM at 13 years and 4 months. So it’s unmistakable India has an exceptionally unique ability in R Praggnanandhaa, who on Saturday night turned into the world’s second-most youthful GM ever at 12 years, 10 months and 13 days.
Praggnanandhaa, as he’s tenderly known, accomplished the accomplishment when he vanquished GM Moroni Luca Jr in cycle 8 of the fourth Gredine Open in Italy.
Praggu turned into the most youthful Global Ace on the planet in May 2017 and stowed his lady GM standard at the World Junior Titles in November a year ago. On the off chance that he had two more GM standards before Walk 10 this year, he would have beaten Sergey Karjakin’s record of turning into the most youthful ever GM (at 12 years and 7 months). Anyway RB Ramesh, Praggu’s mentor, says his ward never deplored missing the shot. “I don’t think Praggu was pursuing the most youthful GM tag. Truly, he would break down his diversion, consider showing signs of improvement at it however past that, he never harped excessively on the results,” Ramesh said.
