17 Jul Kush Purohit – Player of the Week
Chess KLUB allows students to explore their games practically through our Weekly Tournaments. Let’s take a look at the winners of this week and some exceptional games.
Chess KLUB Swiss Open Tournament
Sabarish played a brilliant game against Kush Purohit, our second runner up, who had a fantastic score of 5 points. Sabarish began this game with the Ruy Lopez Opening, and the two opponents exchanged their Rooks in the middle game.
This was followed by Sabarish posing perpetual attacks on Kush’s King that exposed the King. This attack gave Sabarish an advantage that he used to win a Rook. This disadvantage forced Kush to resign on the 28th move.
