Rs. 18,000 is being given away this weekend in a State Open Chess Tournament. Most of the participants who will come here wouldn't know that. And they wouldn't care. Actually, there's only one sport in India where the top players play solely for money. Everywhere else, they play to win. Which is why this will be fun to watch.

The Dronacharya Chess Academy is organising a State Open Chess Tournament at the Vasavi Club on 21st and 22nd April. This tournament will be held in the Swiss format, and there are no age limit or age group for this tournament, which means a junior participant can take on a senior participant. The arbitrators of the tournament will decide on the draws and hold all the rights. The player will be judged on his/her points rather than on the number of wins and losses. Each participant has to play a total of 9 rounds to enter the finals.

Cash prizes worth of Rs. 18,000 will be given away to 20 top players - 8 in the open category and 12 special prizes in the Under-8, Under-10, Under-12 and Under-14 categories. The top 7 players of this tournament win a chance for a direct entry to the FIDE tournament which will be organised by Dronacharya Chess Academy sometime this year.

Dronacharya Chess Academy was established two years ago with the intention of coaching aspiring chess players and organising tournaments for their development. It is affiliated to the All-India Chess Federation. For further details, please contact Y Sameer Kumar at 92463-44435.
