Mar-07-10  yalie: I think he gets his final GM norm at Cannes. Next GM from India since he should go over 2500 with the Cannes performance. Obviously Vishyfan will confirm :) Arghyadip Das gets a GM norm too.

BTW, Multi-Core was hilarious!

  HeMateMe: Get me Kasparov!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: Congrats to Deep Sengupta for his performance as the Iasi Open. Entering as the 13th seed at 2571, overall, he finished in 3rd place with 7/9 (+6,-1,=2). Probably the highlight of the tournament for him is beating top seed V Onischuk.

He also gains 13.1 points for his performance, which should bump him to a career high of 2584.1.

  Penguincw: Happy Birthday to GM Deep Sengupta!
Jan-07-17  happyjuggler0: Seriously though, this guy should play a match with Kasparov, just for the free publicity. Even if it is only a one day blitz match.

May-21-18  Wyatt Gwyon: Posted a 10-move loss today.

Premium Chessgames Member
  AylerKupp: <Wyatt Gwyon> I looked at the game and I think that it must have been a case of chess blindness. What was wrong with 11.cxd7+?

I should talk. I once resigned a game when I had a mate in 5 moves or so because I thought <I> was getting mated in the back rank. I failed to see that moving my rook back to block the check would have been a discovered check.

  moronovich: <AylerKupp: <Wyatt Gwyon> I looked at the game and I think that it must have been a case of chess blindness. What was wrong with 11.cxd7+?>

Well chess blindness is also in the eye of the beholder :) Guess we all have been thereā€¦

In the above position black plays 11.-Nxd7! and is,surprisingly, an officer up.

Premium Chessgames Member
  AylerKupp: <moronovich> You are, of course, quite right. That's why both players are rated above 2500 and I'm not. :-(

But maybe Sengupta did suffer from chess blindness after all since he clearly didn't see ahead of time that after 10.dxc6 Bxe2, 11.cxd7+ fails to 11...Nxd7! After all, the Nf6 is "pinned". So I'm actually encouraged, maybe the only difference between me and a 2500+ player is that Sengupta realized that he would be lost after 11.cxd7 and I didn't. ;-)

May-24-18  stanleys: If Deep Sengupta was aware of the two games below, he would have avoided such a loss for sure. A little consolation is that he is not the first strong player to fall into this trap.
