Ankit Rajpara of Maharashtra shocked grandmaster Saidali Iuldachev of Uzbekistan to be among the leaders with 3 points at the end of the third round of the LIC and ONGC sponsored Chennai Open 2010 chess tournament organized by Sports Promotion Foundation here today.
Twenty three players including second seeded Maxim Turov of Russia, Marat Dzhumaev of Uzbekistan, Manik Mikulas of Slovekia, Ankit Rajapara, Anup Deshmukh of Maharashtra, Saptarshi Roy Choudhury and B.T. Muralikrishnan of Railways and P. Shyam Nikil of Tamil Nadu have scored a centum score.

Ankit chose the exchange variation of Ruy Lopez opening and positioned his pieces well. In the end game, he had a good active knight against bad bishop of Saidali to post a fluent win.
Adopting Nimzo Indian defence, Udeshi Aditya attacked Maxim's king side, but the latter defended well to maintain parity. He slowly developed his pieces and gained the exchange. As game went by, Maxim maximized the pressure with his queen and rook and set to win a piece, when Aditya resigned.
