Kolkata: India got its 72nd Grandmaster in Chess from Bengal. Nineteen-year-old Mitrabha Guha, from Tollygunge’s Kudghat area in Kolkata.

Mitrabha won the GM Norm by winning the eighth round of the Mix 220-Navi Sad Open tournament in Serbia. Bengal got its ninth Grandmaster with first being Dibyendu Barua followed by Surya Shekhar Ganguly.

He has been a three-time national champion before. He was a trainee at Dibyendu Barua Academy from 2005 to 2014. Later, he also took training from Atanu Lahiri. But Mitrabha, a BBA final year student at Maulana Azad College, has been without a coach since 2019.
