The sad reality of chess is that the typical game never ends. The happy reality is that at least that happens faster these days. Here's an entire rapid chess tournament that'll finish in a day.
Magna Chess Academy is organising the Magna Open Rapid Chess Tournament on 19th November at its office in Magna Chambers, Lenaine Estate, opp Cherma's, beside SBH Gunfoundry branch, Abid road, Hyderabad.
