GM Vidit Joins Goldchess
I occasionally write about Goldchess and its aim to become one of the most prominent chess sites on the web. The people behind it are serious in their endeavours and their latest addition only proves the fact.
GM Vidit, rated 2673 as of this February, is one of the young and promising Indian grandmasters, who together with Adhiban, Sethuraman and Harikrishna was part of the fantastic Indian team that finished 4th (shared, but with best tie-break) at the Baku Olympiad last year. He had the best score on the team (8/11) and in this year’s Wijk tournament he served as Anish Giri’s second.
Goldchess identified Vidit as a bright prospect who can help popularise the site in Asia and they made him a patron of the site. Recently Goldchess has been developing rapidly and truly is a chess site of the near future! Currently they are running the 5th edition of the Non-stop Weekly Tournament and you are welcome to take part in the future editions. Please take a look at their site for more information.
To conclude, I would like to show you one of Vidit’s games from the Olympiad. He started with 5/5 and the last win from that streak was against Arkadij Naiditsch (who represented Azerbaijan). The final theme of domination is very pretty.
