Praggnanandhaa, from Chennai, India, played as black in the final round of the 2016 Isle of Man Chess Tournament against Axel Bachmann of Paraguay who is a 2645 rated Grandmaster.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
