Seventeen-year-old Indian chess prodigy, Grandmaster D Gukesh, etched his name in history books by clinching victory in the Candidates Chess Tournament. This remarkable achievement makes him the youngest ever challenger for the world title. Gukesh secured this monumental feat by accumulating nine points out of a possible 14, sealing his victory by drawing his final round game against American chess player Hikaru Nakamura.

Gukesh's triumph places him in an elite league, as he becomes only the second Indian after the legendary Viswanathan Anand to win the prestigious Candidates tournament. Anand's illustrious victory in the same tournament occurred in 2014, solidifying India's prominence in the world of chess.

With this triumph, Gukesh now gears up to challenge the reigning world champion, China's Ding Liren, for the coveted world title later this year. His journey to this historic moment has been nothing short of exceptional, reflecting his remarkable talent and dedication to the game.

Viswanathan Anand, expressing his pride and admiration for Gukesh's achievement, congratulated the young chess prodigy on social media platform 'X'. Anand's words of encouragement and support underscore the immense significance of Gukesh's victory, not only for Indian chess but also on a global scale.

The climactic moments of the tournament unfolded with suspense as Gukesh awaited the outcome of the final game between Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia and top-seeded American Fabiano Caruana. A draw in this crucial game sealed Gukesh's victory, eliminating the need for a tie-break scenario.

Gukesh's meteoric rise in the world of chess began with his attainment of the Grandmaster title at the age of 12, making him the third youngest chess player in history to achieve this milestone. His consistent performance and unwavering determination have propelled him to international recognition and acclaim.

In addition to his triumph in the Candidates tournament, Gukesh's stellar performances include winning a silver medal at the Hangzhou Asian Games last year, further cementing his status as one of the brightest talents in the world of chess.

As Gukesh prepares to embark on the next phase of his chess journey, the dates and venue for the highly anticipated world championship are yet to be finalized. Nevertheless, Gukesh's historic victory serves as a beacon of inspiration for aspiring chess players worldwide, showcasing the power of talent, perseverance, and dedication in the pursuit of excellence.
