Praggnanandhaa stuns top seed Jorden van Foreest at the World Juniors

by Sagar Shah - 16/11/2017
World Juniors is a tournament held for players below the age of 20 years. Little Praggu, although just 12, wanted to test himself against the best juniors in the world. That is the reason he flew down to Italy to fight it out against players much elder to him. With a rating of 2509 no one can underestimate Pragg, but when facing a seasoned campaigner like Jorden van Foreest, you begin to wonder whether the little boy has it in him to beat the former Dutch Champion. Well, Pragg gave us a resounding answer with a nearly flawless game and took home the full point without too many issues. We have the full game with critical moments and video analysis by IM Sagar Shah.

12-year-old Praggnanandhaa plays a flawless game to beat 2600+ opponent!

You might remember that Jorden was able to beat Adhiban just a few days ago in a 6 game match that ended in a 3-3 draw, but was decided on tiebreaks. Now Adhiban is an extremely strong player. This just goes to show how competent Jorden really is. Little Pragg, who has been not in great form of late (especially at the Chigorin Memorial), rose up to the occasion and played a nearly flawless game to outplay van Foreest.

Agadmator, I'm beginning to think your dog knows you're recording and tries to take the spotlight xD

"for those of you who enjoy playing the Italian game I'm sure it will be quite instructive" and your dog stands up to hear you better 1:04

I've started binge watching your channel. 1 of the many things I've learned, I wasn't taight chess properly.

6:16 to 6:44 is precisely why i prefer to watch your analysis than other youtube chess channels. To know why a seemingly, logically obvious move SHOULD be overlooked for a better position is really good if you wanna improve your game play. Speaking for myself, at least, I can say that I thought of Nd3 to Nd5 immediately for better positional play. Completely overlooked why it wouldn't work. I'm a beginner and so thank you for helping me learn and improve :)

Foreest looks like he's trying to explode his opponent's head with some sort psychic power.

The boys a genius. Enough said.

Edit: I was distracted by your dog taking swimming lessons on the sofa 😂😂

The championship is in Italy, so everyone plays the Italian

I usually watch your videos twice in a row: first time for the game, second time for the batshit crazy things your dog does. 😂

Author — Amogh Kulkarni


honestly I can always depend on you to deliver a phenomenal video, there's more pressure on the dog but this time he delivered. Way to go poochy.

I don't know if anyone noticed or told you about this @agadmator when you hit the key to show a next move on the board, that is very satisfying. I really love to watch your videos, it has improved my game a lot. Thank you! #agadmator

Honestly props to Jorden for playing a damn good game

For a moment I felt that it was Fischer who was playing the white pieces!
What a game !
Go Praggu go!

Meadow really loves that couch. Of course I have to watch twice - once for the game, and once for the Meadow show.

This dog has Omaha Beach flashbacks straight from 1944.

"Hello everyone. What is up? I will tell you what is up." LOL Perfect beginning. You should start every video with those precise words. Hilarious, but also confident and engaging. Love it!

Love the fact that you take the liberty of calling him Praggu!!

I am a complete amateur and never really got into chess but for some reason I've watched almost every one of your videos and am completely addicted, thank you for your thoughtful analysis, I feel like I'm learning something.

Your dog is video bombing. I had to watch the game again.
