So talking about his current game in this tournament which was just awesomely executed.
In the morning during the 6th game he did Grunfield Defence opening with black but didnt got a great start.
Again in the noon it was his 7th game and instead of getting the white ones he again got the black pieces which wasnt suitable for him upto an extend.
The GM and winner of chennai international tournament 2018 R.R LAXMAN was present to see his match and was observing him.
This guy noticed that and decided to make the Grunfield Defence opening which pratik couldn't do nicely in the 6th game against his lower rated opponent. And Pratik was pretty damn sure that R.R LAXMAN will be his opponent in the next game.
So he practiced the Grunfield Defence perfectly as he knew that the way he was playing uncomfortably in his prior match he will do the same the guy must have thought so he will also try to make the same move. So he perfectly practiced the variation in his spare time and to his luck his opponent was R.R LAXMAN indeed!!!
Very smartly and perfectly this guy did the same defense opening and drewed the match against GM R.R LAXMAN.
