Tarun lost his game by Grand Master Javokhir Sindarov from Usbekistan, but didn’t lose his hope and played a fantastic game by sacrificing his Bishop for four pawns and won the game against Singaporean Candidate Master Advait Bagri. The penultimate round is like a decider against FM Ilyasli Ugur from Azerbaijan, Tarun sacrificed a pawn for a positional compensation. Last round, it’s a quick draw and sealed a Silver for Ireland.
