Tata Steel Chess Group B winner P Harikrishna looking forward to stronger Group A challenge next year

Hello everyone,

This year's winner of the Group B at the Tata Steel Chess has said that he is already looking ahead to playing stronger competition in next year's Group A. Pentala Harikrishna could not have started 2012 in a better way. Currently, the Tata Steel chess tournament (formerly called Corus) is the most popular among the super events and to win even the second group (B) is a big achievement. 

Group B at Wijk aan Zee this year was a strong tournament as four of the 14 players were rated above Harikrishna, and to score nine points from 13 rounds was creditable. 

"This victory is very important for me. It gives me the opportunity to play against the best players next year in group A," Hari told an Indian newspaper on Wednesday as he took stock of his performance.
