Praggnanandhaa, 18, also lost the top ranking in live ratings among Indians—a spot reclaimed by the legendary Viswanathan Anand, who is also the brand ambassador of this event.


Playing the black side of a London System, Praggnanandhaa equalised even as Maghsoodloo kept on looking for ways to complicate the position. At some point in the middle game, the Indian even looked better, but with the clock ticking away it wasn’t an easy task to finish. Maghsoodloo by then had trained his eyes to go for the black king and all he needed was a blunder. It was over in 38 moves.
