    World Junior and World Girls

    Round 1

    Ikeda 1-0 Akash 2069
    Priyadharshan 2376 1-0 Zulfic
    Ly 1-0 Chaithanyaa 2088

    Guo draw Kulkarni 2317
    Heredia 2076 1-0 Narenthran

    Emma's game was a comfortable draw in 28.

    Moulthun and Junta both get mid-2500 GMs in round 2. Very strong field. Top seed on rating GM Matlakov drew to an FM in the first round.

    An upset with second seed GM Sanan Sjugirov (who beat Carlsen in last year's Olympiad) losing to an FM, Nicolai Getz. Getz gave up his queen for three pieces and his three pieces were too strong.

    Emma and Junta have both been defeated. Fedja drew against an opponent rated 2288, Moulthun's live game against a GM looked drawish when the transmission froze [edit: resumed and Moulthun is a pawn down] and Savithri lost a long game against an opponent rated 350+ points higher.

    Not quite that class. The original giving up of the queen is good and white is always better but the game is later marred by a pawn blunder by black and a missed quick win by white before the right result eventuates.

    Getz - Sjugirov

    Looks like Moulthun got the draw eventually although it has not come up officially yet.

    What is Moulthun's status re an IM title? If he has the norms and just needs to get to 2400 then he may be there.

    Going by the FIDE site he was sitting on a 'live' FIDE Elo of 2399 before this event and would have gained a few poinst in the first two rounds of this event, so the question is whether or not he's lost points in other recent events (and if he does actually have the norms or not).

    He crossed 2400 after his second-last game so the fact that he finished on 2399 (live) is irrelevant, since crossing at any point of any event is sufficient even if you later fall below. He has already qualified. And yes he has the three norms.

    Unfortunately the live board is showing that Moulthun lost to Martinovic. It is also showing only eight moves but there are some other boards also showing very small numbers of moves and decisive results so very likely the game was longer than that.

    Shreyans (2203) gets shredded by Fedja, making a few suspect moves then blundering a piece in a pretty much losing position.

    Ikeda won in 52 moves. Emma won in 40 playing an Exchange French against her lower rated opponent. Contrary to the exchange variation's reputation for drawishness, it is only really so if both players want it that way, and can be very sharp at least below GM level otherwise.

    Emma should have lost but her opponent blundered into queen sac for mate next move in a completely won position. Perhaps they were both in time trouble.

    Thanks KB, it didn't occur to me he might have cracked 2400 in the previous event

    Congrats to IM-elect Moulthun Ly then

    Moulthun won easily, while Emma, Savithri and Junta all lost although Junta briefly seemed to have drawing chances after giving up the exchange and swapping queens.

    Fedja missed a very large number of winning lines (7-8 by my count) but still a draw against a player rated 200 points higher is no disaster.

    Zulfic - Kunal.

    14.e4 was an alternative but for some reason when I want to enter that as a variation the PGN viewer tries to draw pretty pictures.
