Moscow: Grandmaster Pentala Harikrishna registered his first win of the Moscow FIDE Grand Prix as he got better off English GM Michael Adams played here at the DI Telegraph late on Tuesday night.

Playing with white pieces, Harikrishna took the aggressive route from the word go and the Englishman could not do much and wilted under the pressure to concede the game.

“After a few inaccurate moves in the initial stages of the game by Adams, gave me a good position. From there on, I gradually improved my position and won,” Harikrishna said after winning the tie.

With the win, the World No. 16 Indian, now has maintained his unbeaten run against Adams this year and recorded his second successive victory against him. 

With one win, three draws and a loss in five games so far in the campaign, Harikrishna has accumulated a total of 2.5 points and is placed 13th on the leaderboard.
