New Delhi: India ended their World Chess Olympiad campaign in the open section by drawing their 11th round match against Norway at Baku, Azerbaijan on Tuesday.
India threw away an outside chance of making it to the medal list early in the game when Grandmaster SP Sethuraman turned adventurous on the 16th move, only to give up his bishop for a pawn with a hope of equalising the piece position a couple of moves later.
Unfortunately for Sethuraman his opponent saw through the move early enough to retain the piece advantage and forced the Indian to resign. It was a costly loss for India as they had to win the match to stay in contention for a chance to win the bronze medal.
