Arjun Erigaisi won the Tata Steel Chess India Rapid 2021. He did so by setting up an extremely difficult final against Levon Aronian. Sagar had Vishy Anand in the live commentary room. The five-time world champion with Tania and Sagar felt Arjun’s position was hopeless. But the young man from Warangal saw it in a deeper light. He found an incredibly precise series of moves that helped him hold Levon and win the tournament. Sagar brings you this critical moment and breaks down the analysis.
