India’s rising star Vidit Gujrathi on Tuesday bagged his second title of 2018 after being awarded the joint winner along with Swedish Grand Master Nils Grandelius at the Seigman chess tournament in Malmo, Sweden.

The 23-year-old India beat highly rated Russian Alexander Morozevich and another Swede, Linus Johansson to share the title with Grandelius. Gujrathi picked up 3.5 points in five rounds and garnered 2.8 rating points. The win, which was secured with a rating of 2707, also catapulted him to world no 33.

Earlier in the year, Gujrathi had earlier become only the third Indian after P Harikrishna and B Adhiban to win the challengers section in the Tata Steel Chess tournament. He had come into the Sweden tournament following a poor show in the Aerofloat open.

Gujrathi, who has booked a spot for the Masters next year, is now also only the fourth Indian after Viswanathan Anand, K Sasikiran and Harikrishna go past 2700-mark. Gujrathi currently has 2709.8 live rating points.
