    Rheyansh Annapureddy in the U8 World Youth Championship, Butami Georgia

    We certainly need some positive and uplifting news in the world of chess.

    Rheyansh (FIDE 1698) is flying the flag for Australia and is coming =1st with 5/5 in the U8 Open section of this 11 round tournament, part of the World Cadets.

    His starting rank was 4/153 players and next round he is due to play a slightly higher rated player from Russia, Roman Shogdzhiev. This is like some real-life 'Searching for Bobby Fischer' drama!

    Games begin at a convenient 9:15pm for Australian viewers in the eastern states: https://chess24.com/en/watch/live-to...-2022-u8/5/1/1

    Go Rheyansh from the Hobsons Bay Chess Club!!

    He didn't have a lot of luck in Round 10 either, unfortunately...

    Rheyansh equalised easily and was quite comfortable up until move 22. 22...Nc5 was a mistake (23. Rxf5!) but White responded with a blunder of his own: 23. Rae1??. Rheyansh found 23...Qxe1!, after which there proceeded naturally 24. Rxe1 Rxe1+ 25. Kf2 Rae8 26. b4. At this point Rheyansh found the key move 26...Rc1! Now the game went 27. Ne6+ (forced) Kf7 (best engine move, but requires precise calculation, as the Nc5 will be lost after white gets Ng5 in) 28. Ng5+ (forced) Kg8 29. Qd2. Here Black responded 29...Rxc4?, but this is not quite energetic enough: White played 30. bxc5, planted his knight on e6 to disconnect the rooks, and then Black is forced to give up more material to prevent mate on g7.

    Instead of 29...Rxc4, Black could have won with 29...Rxe4!!, which keeps the rooks connectable. Then, 30. bxc5 could be met by 30...Rexc4, and then the White Q will be lost to one kind of pin or another. Not that easy to find, though. So if at 27. Ne6+, Black does not see the idea 29...Rxe4 or is not able to evaluate the position after 30...Rexc4 as winning, then, the alternative 27...Kg8 may be a pragmatic choice, as Black will have time to play ...Ne4+ and will have no problems after that.
