GM David Paravyan won the November 10 Titled Tuesday tournament, his first-ever Titled Tuesday victory. Like GM Jeffery Xiong last week, the Russian grandmaster finished on a superb 10/11 score.
The 22-year-old Paravyan (@dropstoneDP) is not the most famous Russian grandmaster (he is the 22nd player on the national list), but definitely a strong one. After finishing in an excellent 10th place in the FIDE Chess.com Grand Swiss last year, he scored the best result of his career so far last January by winning the 2020 Gibraltar Masters.
He started his Titled Tuesday with an amazing streak of eight straight wins before losing to GM Raunak Sadhwani (@RaunakSadhwani2005). Thanks to an impressive finish—wins with the black pieces against Xiong and GM Shakhriyar Mamedyarov, Paravyan finished in clear first place.
