Praggnanandhaa beats World Junior top seed

12-year-old Praggnanandhaa could beat Sergey Karjakin’s record to become the youngest grandmaster in history if he wins the World Junior Championship taking place just now in Tarvisio, Italy. That would be an unlikely achievement for the 26th seed in a ferociously competitive event, but he stands at 3.5/4 after beating top seed Jorden van Foreest. Russians Kirill Alekseenko and Aleksey Sorokin have the only perfect scores, while the girls’ section is topped by Mongolia’s Davaademberl Nomin-Erdene.
