Harika advances at Reykjavik Open chess

IANS logoIANS 25-04-2017

Even though she was up against a lower rated opponent, the World No.11 Indian had to work hard to prevail in the game.

"My opponent made a small mistake in the opening phase of the game which made it easier for me," the Guntur lass said after the game.

"Even though she made a mistake, I had to convert it very accurately and won after a five hour long strategic battle," she added.

Harika now has a total of five wins, one draw and a loss apiece which has seen her amass a total of five and a half points to be at the 14th position.

The Hyderabadi will take on 24-year-old Grand Master Mustafa Yilmaz of Turkey in the next round.
