IANS logoIANS 19-05-2017

Coming into the day on the back of a splendid win and a day's rest, the World No.16 Indian, playing with black pieces, on Thursday night could not maintain his momentum and despite giving a tough fight in a game that lasted for 52 moves, failed to avert his second loss of the campaign.

With three more rounds to go, Harikrishna is currently placed 16th on the leaderboard with a total of 2.5 points in his kitty.

The Hyderabadi will now take on the ninth placed Evgeny Tomashevsky of Russia.
