Five players continued to lead with Sethuraman beating Sahaj Grover and wresting his place in the leader board. Sethuraman, Deepan, Lalith Babu, Karthikeyan, Deep Sengupta are leading with two points from three games. Ten rounds remain to be played. This long event runs until December 18.

Sethuraman went on to win the game in 41 moves. Laxman started with a defeat, a bye and now registered a resounding victory. In a queen and rook ending, Swayams Mishra drifted on move 32 and the Chennai player was able to penetrate with his queen to win in 45 moves. In a well fought game, Karthikeyan handled the tactical shots of Deep Sengupta well to defend well and draw an opposite colour bishop ending in 63 moves. Deepan as white and Lalith Babu drew in 37 moves from a Caro-Kann defence advanced variation. In a queen and rook ending, they repeated the position and shared the point. Kunte drew in 35 moves with ease against Rajesh using the Bogo-Indian with the black pieces. Shyam Nikil opted for the anti-king’s Indian defence set up with white and accepted the draw offer from Girinath on move 27. With three players, Kunte, Laxman and Vidit having received the bye the standings may not be the perfect place to see who is doing well.

Anand's Advice to All Chess Playing Children and their Parents and Coaches
I think Children should be allowed to enjoy the game. Parents and Coaches can provide the ideal environment for a child to play Chess. Titles and Awards is a nice incentive but should not be the only one. I get parents had children asking me for 10 tips to become Viswanathan Anand. I think there is only one. Enjoy the game without any pressures and learn the game through curiosity and interest. The results, whatever they are, will satisfy you. Even at the highest levels, chess has to be played with passion otherwise you pay for it dearly. This passion only comes when i play happily.
V. Anand, World Chess Champion
