Chess may be a cerebral game, but wanting to be good at it is a no-brainer. And that's all that this tournament aims to make the kids.
The Andhra Pradesh Chess Association is organising the 12th Brilliant Trophy A P State Open Prize Money Chess Tournament, between the 12th and 13th of May, at the Brilliant Grammar High School at Dilsukhnagar.

The registration fee is Rs. 50, and spot entries will also be accepted.
The tournament will be conducted in the Sicilian format on a league basis. Every player has to play all the other players in his category, and on the basis of these performances, winners will be announced on the final points scored.
Prizes worth Rs. 10,000 will be given away to 20 players. 5 prizes will be given to the top five players in the open category, and 5 prizes will be given to the top performers in the Under-8, Under-10, Under-12, Under-14 and Veterans categories.
