Aditya Mittal becomes India's 77th Grandmaster

Aditya Mittal earned his maiden GM-norm at Serbia Masters 2021. Five months later, he scored his second GM-norm at 2nd El Llobregat Open 2021. The teenager scored his third and final GM-norm at Serbia Masters 2022. In the sixth round of 3rd El Llobregat Open 2022, he drew with the Spain no.1 GM Francisco Vallejo Pons to cross 2500 in the live ratings and become India's 77th Grandmaster. Aditya has been close to 2500 for quite some time in the past few months, however, he finally managed it cross it last night. He is currently one of the five leaders of the tournament at 5/6 each.
