HYDERABAD: Nineteen-year-old Peddi Rahul Srivathsav's dream came true on Friday, when he crossed the ELO mark of 2500 to clinch the Grand Master title. Rahul is the fourth GM from Telangana after Arjun Erigaisi in 2018, Harsha Bharathakoti (2019) and Raja Rithvik in 2021. He is the 74th in a long list from India pioneered by Viswanathan Anand. Rahul achieved the feat after drawing his eighth round game against GM Levan Pantsulaia at the 9th Cattolica Chess Festival in Italy. A player has to secure three GM-norms and cross the live rating of 2500 ELO points to become a GM. Rahul already has five GM-norms and would get another soon, but as the calendar was affected by the pandemic, he had to wait to collect the last few points. Despite the delay, he was excited to become a GM. "I am delig...
