Could 16 year old Pragg beat the Swedish number one chess player?

16 year old Pragg (aka Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa) took on the Swedish number one chess player, Nils Grandelius in round 4 of Tata Steel Chess today. Pragg was seeking his first win in the tournament, having lost to Jorden Van Foreest, yesterday and drawn twice. Pragg played an awesome line of the Grunfeld with an early h4 and showed his attacking intent, and soon the 16 year old had Swedish number one, Grandelius, on the back foot. Pragg kept control but Grandelius sought counterplay, so could 16 year old Pragg keep control or would he let it slip to the Swedish number one chess player, Grandelius. Hope you enjoy watching to find out!
