Arshiya overcomes post-draw blues in third round to win the fourth against higher-rated Kazakhi rival

By Our Correspondent

Agartala November 09,2018: Tripura's child chess wonder Arshiya Das stormed back from her post-draw blues in the third round to outplay her higher rated kazakhi rival Ali Kausar in the fourth round after a grueling 3-10 hours play. Despite playing with white, considered an advantage by chess players across the world , Arshiya initially conceded ground but after a well-fought middle game she dominated the end game to beat her rival. 

Now on 3.5 points after four rounds, Arishiya will take on her much higher rated Mongolian rival Oyungerel  Sharavdorji on Board no-3 in the fifth round . The game is scheduled to commence from 8-30 in the night , according to Indian standard time. Arishiya is now on 6th position overall in her age-group-under-8, world championship. 

Arishiya had blundered a sure win in the third round by offering a draw her higher rated US rival at a time when she was three pawns up and heading for a certain victory. Her mother Arnisha Das and coach Prasenjit Dutta worked hard to pull Arshiya out of disappointment and take heart for better results in the coming rounds. This paid off but her mother Arnisha feels that Arshiya might have made the mistaken offer of draw in the third round out of fatigue. But she is okay now for tougher fights in the upcoming rounds in the ongoing world championship. 

Arshiya's mother  Arnisha informed media by a press-note from Spain that her daughter was in fine fettle for the tougher battles  of wits in the remaining part of the world championship.
