World Juniors 2011 - Days 1 & 2

Round 1

Moulthun and Junta comfortably beat their 2050-rated opposition. Fedja went down in a tough game against IM Priyadharshan where he had a queen for several pieces from the early middlegame, while Emma scored an upset draw with the 6th seed Kulkani from India.

Round 2

Moulthun and Junta were paired with GMs Ter-Sahakyan (Armenia) and Grandelius (Sweden) respectively. Moulthun is too lazy to enter his game which was a long draw where both players thought they were pushing for a win. Junta went down after playing a Nimzo, retreating his bishop to f8 and later playing e5, effectively playing a King's Indian down 5 tempi. Fedja drew with Deepak Aaron (2288, USA) in  an Exchange Slav where he missed a chance for an endgame advantage with 25.Qd6 and Emma lost to her roommate WIM Nakhbayeva (KAZ).
