Vidit Gujrathi became only the fourth Indian chess player to beat reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen, when he came up with the win in a Pro Chess League match on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old was playing for India Yogis in the online tournament featuring 16 teams in a rapid chess event that boasts an impressive $150,000 prize money.
He managed to come up with the win despite playing with the black after Carlsen, who was competing for the Canada Chessbrahs team, made a tactical error.
“Just defeated the GOAT, World champion, Magnus Carlsen!” Gujrathi posted on twitter shortly after his win.
He now joins compatriots R Praggnanandhaa, D Gukesh and Arjun Erigaisi as the only Indians to have beaten Carlsen.
