Indian teams continued their winning run in the Open section of the 44th Chess Olympiad with all three posting easy victories over their respective opponents here on Sunday.
While the second-seeded India ‘A’ rode on wins from GMs P Harikrishna and Arjun Erigaisi for a 3-1 victory against Greece, India ‘B’ swept past Switzerland 4-0 and the third team got the better of Iceland 3-1.
Vidit S Gujrathi, playing on second board for India A, settled for a draw against GM Nikolaos Theodorou while K Sasikiran was held by Evgenios Ioannidis.
Speaking after beating Dimitrios Mastrovasilis, Harikrishna said his opponent put up a good resistance and towards the end, he had got a good combination of moves.
“Meeting the other Indian team depends on the pairing. Our focus is on playing the matches and not the teams,” he said.
