Hou Yifan Challenge 2: Praggnanandhaa makes it 9/9!

Indian chess prodigy Praggnanandhaa won all four games of his games on Day 2 of the Hou Yifan Challenge to reach a perfect 9/9 score as the 4th stage of the Julius Baer Challengers Chess Tour crossed the halfway mark. That put him two ahead of Vincent Keymer in 2nd place, but Vincent has played one game less and scored 3/3 on Day 2 to keep within striking distance before their head-to-head clash. Christopher Yoo is in 3rd place, while Poland’s Pawel Teclaf had a good day to move up to 4th.
