By Our Correspondent

Agartala November 08,2018: Tripura's chess prodigy Arshiya Das blundered away a sure win against higher-ranked US rival Miss Gu Crystal Jiuzhou in the postponed third round match yesterday by offering draw from a decisively winning position when she was three pawns up. 

Arshiya's mother informed from Spain that right at the beginning of the game Arshiya gained an advantage and after two hours of play she was three pawns up . 

At a time when Arishiay was moving towards a sure win she blundered by offering a  draw to her cornered rival who accepted the offer with alacrity. Arshiya is thus placed with 2.5 points and is facing her higher ranked rival Miss Ali Kausar of Kazakhstan tonight at 9-00 in the 4th round.
Arishiya's mother Arnisha Das and coach Prasenjit Dutta  felt disappointed by the draw but still enthused little Arshiya to do better in the 4th round. They are however hopeful that Arshiya will be able to make up for the lost half point by winning in the next rounds.
