Vidit Gujrathi has started off the 2nd leg of the FIDE Grand Prix 2022 with a flourish as he beat Alexei Shirov with the white pieces. Vidit opened the game with 1.e4. He plays that move every now and then, but it is not his main weapon. When his opponent played the Najdorf, Vidit played the fashionable 6.Qd3!? It led to immense complications for which the Indian GM was well prepared. The board was set on fire! But it was clear that only one person could get burnt in that inferno! It was Shirov as Vidit romped to a fine victory.
