Chess Olympiad: Indian eves post victory

Pin It

IM Tania Sachdev recorded her sixth victory in seven games as the Indian women cruised to a 3-1 victory over lower-ranked Estonia to take the joint fourth spot with 11 points after the seventh round of Chess Olympiad.
Up against a lower-ranked team, the Indians conceded a full point on the fourth board as Soumya Swaminathan continued with her rollercoaster ride here. D Harika defeated Monika Tsiganova on the top board while Mary Ann Gomes had it easy against Triin Narva on the third board. Tania won it against Tatjana Fomina but Regina Narva saved some honour for her team at the expense of Soumya.
The Indian men played out a draw against Argentina. Abhijeet Gupta came back from the jaws of defeat and turned the tables on Sandro Mareco on the fourth board.
