Indian Grand Master Pentala Harikrishna held World No.6 Shakhriyar Mamedyarov of Azerbaijan to a thrilling draw in the third-round clash of the Geneva FIDE Grand Prix late here.

The World No. 22 Indian, playing with white pieces on Saturday, attacked from the onset and found himself in a winning position but a slight miscalculation saw him surrender the advantage to the second-seeded Azerbaijan player.

“I was playing a good game and got into a winning position but played the wrong move to give away the win. Instead of playing Kh2 on the 28th move, the precise move to win would’ve been Nc5,” Harikrishna said.  Virat Kohli Overcomes Bouncer Challenge To Register A Record Breaking Ton

Harikrishna is tied second with two points, courtesy of a win and two consecutive draws. The 31-year-old Guntur player will take on another Azerbaijani Grand Master and table topper Teimour Radjabov in his fourth-round encounter later tonight.

“Teimour has been playing really well in this tournament so far. He is a solid player and I’ll look to play my normal game and see how it goes,” Harikrishna said ahead of the clash.  Watch: Animated Video Shows Hardik Pandya And Ravindra Jadeja Fighting In The Dressing Room
