Batumi : World rapid champion Viswanathan Anand put it past Markus Ragger in a brilliant positional game as the Indian men’s team cruised to a 3.5-0.5 victory over Austria in the second round of the 43rd Chess Olympiad here. Back to the Olympiad after a gap of 12 years, Anand was precise in calculation and brilliant in judgement giving away nothing to Ragger who was all at sea defending a difficult position out of the opening on Tuesday evening.P Harikrishna, on the second board, benefitted from a late blunder by Valentin Dragnev after Vidit Gujrathi ensured an Indian lead with a fluent victory over Andreas Diermair. On the fourth board, B Adhiban was held to a draw by Peter Schreiner.Also Read | Asia Cup 2018: THIS player may become ‘tie king’ for Team IndiaWith their second 3.5-0.5 victory, the Indian men remain in joint lead on four points with 40 other teams and will next take on Canada.The Indian women scored a 4-0 victory defeating Venezuela on all four boards. On the top board, Grandmaster D Harika was stretched but not hassled by Sarai Carolina Sachez Castillo. On the second, Tania Sachdev played a clean game to outwit Amelia Hernandez Bonilla. Eesha Karavade was in her elements against Tairu Manuela Rovira Contreras and national champion Padmini Rout defeated Corals Patino Garcia to complete the whitewash.With 33 teams leading in this section, the Indian women will be next facing Serbia that might pose a better challenge.The second day in the biggest chess event was again not devoid of upsets and top seeded Russia became the first major casualty in the women’s section losing to Uzbekistan by a narrow 1.5-2.5 margin.The Uzbek women did well to hold the first three boards and then pulled the plug on the last board as higher rated Russian Natalija Pogonina was outdone by Nodira Nadirjanova.Anand played the Italian opening that has been finding a lot of favour in top level chess these days. Banking upon an idea played by Grandmaster S P Sethuraman in December last year, Anand found the going easy in a strategic battle when Ragger went wrong in his planning.Also Read | I was assaulted at 7; raped at 16, reveals actor Padma Lakshmi after 32 years of silenceWith his minor pieces better than his opponent’s, Anand made a foray on the queenside and despite swapping of pieces at regular intervals the advantage for him remained intact. Ragger resigned on the 47th move when he faced loss of a pawn.“He probably could have resisted better,” Anand said after the game citing some important moments where black might have equalized with accurate moves.Vidit Gujrathi played the Ruy Lopez and Diermair simply fell prey to a simple tactic resulting in serious material deficit while Harikrishna kept on pushing for more in an equal endgame and was duly rewarded.Among the Indian women, Harika replaced Humpy on the top board and outplayed her opponent in her trademark style.Eesha Karavade had to do little as her opponent made many positional errors right from the beginning while Padmini Rout also faced little resistance.After a rather topsy-turvy opening game, Tania Sachdev also found her form and squeezed out a fine victory thanks to some wily manoeuvres.Indian results: Open: India (4) beat Austria (2) 3.5-0.5 (Viswanathan Anand beat Markus Ragger; Valentin Dragnev lost to P. Hari Krishna; Vidit Gujarati beat Andreas Diermair; Peter Schreiner drew with B. Adhiban).Women: India (4) beat Venezuela (2) 4-0 (D. Harika beat Sarai Carolina Sachez Castillo; Amelia Hernandez Bonilla lost to Tania Sachdev; Eesha Karavade beat Tairu Manuela Rovira Contreras; Corals Patino Garcia lost to Padmini Rout). last_img read more


Slow start hampers Syracuse in 3-1 loss to No. 7 Robert Morris

first_img Published on January 27, 2017 at 11:33 pm Contact Nick: [email protected] | @nick_a_alvarez Facebook Twitter Google+ On a night when her teammates came out flat, Syracuse goalie Abbey Miller was tested from the get-go. Eight of Miller’s 20 saves came within the opening minutes as RMU pressured the Orange relentlessly. Within the first minute, SU had conceded two faceoffs in its own zone. Miller’s number was called over and over as the Orange defenders failed to clear the puck.When Syracuse defenders would pass the puck along the boards, desperately keeping their heads above water, RMU’s speedy forwards intercepted the puck and tested the Orange netminder.“I just didn’t think we had much jump,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. “The first seven or eight minutes I thought the ship was sinking, it didn’t look good.”After RMU’s barrage of shots to begin the game, a Dakota Derrer hooking penalty gave RMU a skater advantage. Syracuse’s (9-11-5, 8-3-2 CHA) slow start allowed No. 7 Robert Morris (17-2-6, 10-1-2) to control the majority of the game and beat the Orange, 3-1, Friday night at Tennity Ice Pavilion.Syracuse entered the game a win away from tying for first place in the CHA. But poor passes and decision making did not help the cause.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs senior forward Jessica Sibley skated down on the left side of the neutral zone, three RMU defenders crashed down on her. Feeling the pressure of the defense, Sibley kicked the puck away into the waiting stick of RMU center Jessica Gazzola. Seconds later, Miller was beat glove side for the second time in as many minutes.Gazzola’s goal doubled RMU’s lead, and Syracuse’s hopes of tying for first place were dashed. A string of errant SU passes followed.“We were really antsy, gripping our sticks pretty tight,” SU defender Megan Quinn said. “We have to forget what we are playing for.”A strong RMU forecheck prevented the SU forwards from getting out in transition. SU’s tendency of passing the puck along the boards proved futile as RMU capitalized off creating traffic.“We weren’t thinking,” Flanagan said. “We weren’t quick enough up here (motioning to his head).”SU forward Stephanie Grossi cited a lack of communication when it came to the teams struggles of clearing the puck. The quickness of the RMU forwards, stifled the Orange offense early on. When the RMU attack trapped the Orange along the boards, SU failed to provide a response.“There has to be someone open on the breakout,” Grossi said. “If we can find that, on offense we will be a lot more successful.” Commentslast_img read more
