He is simply16 As well as he is doing it at a place not much from his home town, Chennai. He can not have actually selected a larger phase than the Olympiad to reveal his arrival as a prospective super star of globe chess, or much better place than this, for that issue.
He has actually plainly been the most effective entertainer at this Olympiad.
