The only sport which can compete with cricket in sheer time taken is chess. The good news, then, is that the Twenty20 version of chess is on in town today.
The Andhra Pradesh Chess Federation is organising a one-day Rapid Chess Tournament at Aurora Degree College in Chikkadpally, this Sunday. Competitions will be held in the open category, and prizes worth Rs. 5,000 will be given away to the top ten players based on their final points tally. Special prizes will be awarded in the Under-6, Under-8, Under-10, Under-12 and Under-14 boys and girls categories, and to the Best Woman and Best Veteran players.
The registration fee is Rs. 100 per head. The entries close at 9:00am on the day of the tournament, and the games start from 10:00am. All the games will be played in the Swiss League format, in which winners are declared by the total wins and points.
