Ishan Roy stuns former champ Parab in Grand Prix Chess Series

Mumbai, March 14 (Ajit Weekly News) Ram Vishal Parab, winner of the second leg, crashed to an upset defeat against Ishan Roy (ELO 1609) in the third round of the Rs 2.50 lakh prize money Grand Prix Chess Series, organised by Indian Chess School at the Russian Centre for Science & Culture here on Thursday.

Ishan played as white and selected the Ruy Lopez Opening against Ram. Despite being up against a skilled opponent, Ishan kept the game balanced during the early middle game. But then, Ram made a big mistake, losing a piece and from there, Ishan used his skills to clinch the most significant victory of his career, which was also recognised as the best by GM Pravin Thipsay.
