Bihar talent Saurabh Anand

Bihar talent Saurabh Anand put it across Grandmaster Manik Mikulas of Slovakia keeping his International Master Norm chance alive. In an interesting Sicilian game, he came up with a nice pawn sortie that made his offside pawn a powerful and winning one. The unstoppable rook pawn coupled with loss of material, forced Mikulas to resign after 33 moves. Saurabh who came with an IM Norm performance in the recently concluded IIFL Mumbai and Delhi Open, has played, thus far, four titled players and has remained undefeated.
