Indian GM Krishnan Sasikiran is scheduled to play back to back tournaments in Russia. He will be playing in Group 'A' of the Moscow Open starting from 30-Jan and ending on 07-Feb.
Sasikiran will continue his stay in Russia by participating in Group 'A1' of the premier Aeroflot Open from 08-Feb. Other Indian players confirmed so far to play at Aeroflot are IM Dronavalli Harika, IM Ashwin Jayaram & WGM Eesha Karavade.
Sasikiran's current live rating is 2674.2 and if he can get good results in these 2 tournaments, he can hope to get closer to the 2700 one more time. The highest career rating Sasikiran has ever achieved in his career was 2711.
All the best to the Indian players for these two tournaments. I will be updating the live ratings as soon as I can after the rounds are finished each day.
