In our news flash we had a special mention of Raahil's 2nd round crushing victory over 2nd seeded Raahul! In a scintillating display of attacking chess, Raahil sacrificed two pawns in the opening to initiate an attack on Raahul's King and culminated it with a beautiful Rook sacrifice on move 25 to catch the King in mating net. IM Sagar Shah had summed it up beautifully: "Round two best game prize goes to CM Raahil Mullick for 25.Rxe6 sacrifice and a fine combination"!! You can re-play this beautiful game here:
