About the organizer of the event - Buddhibal Kreeda Trust

The tournament is organized by Buddhibal Kreeda Trust (BKT). BKT is a well-known charitable trust which conducts regular Chess Tournaments and Chess Programs in Pune. It was founded in 1998 by Prakash Kunte, GM Abhijit Kunte, WIM Mrunalini Kunte-Aurangabadkar, Nityananand Mehendale (owner of Manohar Mangal Karyalay) and Raghuvir Apte. At the time of incorporation, the Kunte family had contributed Rs. 30,000 as corpus. Today, the corpus of the trust is more than Rs. 40 lakhs. The organization strives for promoting the game of chess not only in Pune, but also in Maharashtra and India. It also does its best to support talented players by providing financial help.

 

Since its inception, BKT has organized approximately 150 tournaments which include Women’s National B, National Team Championship, 4 National Championships, more than 10 State Selection Tournaments, more than 13 All India FIDE Rating Tournaments and more than 100 local Chess Tournaments. BKT has also organized India’s first ever knockout chess championship with a prize fund of Rs. 8,00,000 in 2006. In this tournament, most of the GMs from India had participated.

A huge rapid knockout event was held in Pune organized by Buddhibal Kreeda Trust

One of India's finest talents from a few years ago - GM Akshayraj Kore

Further, BKT also contributed towards the organization of the World Junior Chess Championship in 2014 and Maharashtra Chess League. BKT has so far distributed more than Rs. 30 lakhs in prize fund or in different types of sponsorships.

 

‘Laptop to Chess Players’ is an initiative of the BKT which helps in developing the budding chess players. Under this scheme, more than 20 laptops have been distributed to chess players between 2006 and 2014. Many prominent personalities and organizations contributed towards this initiative. In 2007, the program was for Pune Players only. Given below is the list of players:

In 2008, the program was extended to CMCA Players. The awardees included Prathamesh Mokal, Vidit Gujrathi, Shardul Gagare, Akshyaraj Kore | Photo: BKT archives

In 2011, the program was extended to all players from Maharashtra. As many as 11 chess players were awarded laptops! Third from left in the front row is the little boy who won the silver medal at World Juniors 2018 a couple of days ago. It's acts like these seven years ago by trusts like BKT which may have pushed him to get better at chess!| Photo: BKT archives

2014 saw six players receive laptops from the BKT. While Vidit Gujrathi and Akshayraj Kore were awarded for acquiring the GM title, Shardul Gagare received a laptop for completing his IM title requirements. Besides, Aditya Mittal, Divya Deshmukh and Akanksha Hagwane were awarded for winning title prizes at the U-7 (Open), U-7 (Girls) and the U-13 (Girls) National Championships respectively. | Photo: BKT archives

What Buddhibal Kreeda Trust (BKT) means to me?

By IM Abhishek Kelkar

 

"My chess career started in 1998! The trio Mrunalini Kunte Tai (coach), Abhijit Kunte dada (my childhood idol, mentor and inspiration), Kunte kaka (fatherly figure to me, my well wisher, supporter and financial source in my difficult times) whatever I am today is because of the existence of these 3 pillars in my life! They 3 formed Buddhibal Kreeda trust in 1998, in the same year when my chess kicked off. My 1st state championship U-7 catergory was organized by BKT. Since then I am following the fantastic journey of BKT. I have witnessed every initiative of BKT, whether it may felicitation functions or laptop distribution to chess players function.

 

Most of the tournaments organised by BKT I had participated; Lately I am assisting Kunte Kaka in the organization. I have won few of tournaments organized by BKT. I have participated in more than 10 editions of "Shri Mahaeshwaranand Saraswati Memorial" (a strong tournament) though never got chance to hold the trophy. Looking forward to change my luck in this year!

 

I thank BKT and Shri.Prakash Kunte Kaka for all his inputs and efforts, for spreading chess and supporting countless chess players, their families (psychologically and financially) in last 20 years. I pray to God his love and passion for chess may increase day by day as chess needs such an amazing person for its acceptance in the society on large scales. Kudos to Kaka. I request young generation to participate in this year's Mahaeshwaranand Saraswati All India Open tournament 2018". Wishing a grand success for the tournament & BKT in coming years."

IM Abhishek Kelkar is an IM and a Shiv Chatrapati award winner

About online tournaments on Playchess by ChessBase India:

ChessBase India has organized innumerable online events successfully. Here is some feedback about the quality of the events:

GM D Gukesh, youngest GM of India

I am extremely happy to have participated in my first online blitz tmt conducted by ChessBase India and loved the experience and thrill. from the start to the finish its professionally conducted and got the rare opportunity to play several high-class players in a single event and looking forward for its next event

 

GM Vaibhav Suri, winner of 2nd ChessBase Online Blitz tournament and Letsup MCA Grand Prix

The tournament was conducted quite smoothly and a quite "fun Sunday" event. The participation of Adhiban & Sethuraman definitely added the spark to the event. I guess an Online Blitz Festival would be the next way to go (with different formats - Chess960, Bughouse, Bullet etc). Overall really happy with such events. Way to go!!

 

GM Shyam Sundar M, 31st GM of India

It was such a interesting and a unique event. I hope these events happen quite often so that people cannot cheat with computer assistance and are forced to play genuinely. I thank the organising team for making this event happen smoothly :)

 

GM R R Laxman, former National Blitz Champion

I thank the  Chessbase India team once more for their strenous and tireless endeavour to popularise blitz events in India. Considering the fact that the present day time control  even in classical format ( unlike the yesteryears)  demands quick reflexes and blitz skills  , I feel that the entire Chessbase India team is doing an exemplary and praiseworthy job. A boon for Indian chess !!!. Though my performance this time was not satisfactory ,I hope to excel and cherish more pleasant memories from my side in the forthcoming editions of Chessbase India blitz events.

 

GM Andrey Devyatkin, Russia

What I do find strange is that the share of chess960 tournaments in the great many online chess events held during the Corona crisis has been extremely small. FIDE seems to have lost all the enthusiasm it has demonstrated last year with regard to chess960, whereas other organisers have been either following suit or being habitually conservative, traditional and cautious -- which is quite characteristic for the chess world in general, and sometimes counterproductive at that. But wait... how on Earth can one remember the different rules for castling? Even though it might create great opportunities for our game yet unknown, wouldn't that be too challenging for the modest memory of an ordinary chess player? One has to leave some room for 25-moves analyses in the Najdorf and the Grunfeld, after all...

Meanwhile, whenever a rare prize chess960 event does take place online, it usually brings together many decent players -- which could be seen from this tournament as well -- and gets a very good feedback. So, thank you Chessbase India and Buddhibal Kreeda Trust for breaking the spell of cautiousness and hosting this event!

The tournament was smoothly organised and fun to play. To me it looked no weaker than some open Indian Championship. That said, I think chess960 in general requires longer time controls so its real depth could be revealed, but when it comes to online play and its specificity 3+1 or 3+2 is OK. Also it was nice to know afterwards that the organizers were providing a live commentary.

Let me finish this by quoting Robert Fischer, the great inventor of chess960 (which he himself preferred to call 'Fischerandom'). During his only meeting with Kirsan Ilyumzhinov in 1995, Fischer asked the newly-elected FIDE president: 'Why do you offer people a black and white television set, when there is a set in color?'

 

Amardeep Bartakke

Very strong tournament and very well orgnized, very happy to play among the strong Grandmasters, looking forward to many more such events

 

Amit Mahajan

A heartly Thanks to CHESSBASE INDIA Team for organizing this event. It was a great event with exciting chess format. I will adore to play more chessbase India events in the future. Great Initiative, Good luck.

 

Priti Mahendru, mother of Jaiveer Mahendru

This was our second chessbase online blitz event. My son is 8 years and it was an absolute thrill for him to be playing against titled players ! Thanks a lot for organizing this. We look forward to more such events !

 

CM Kushagra Mohan

I was happy the way the tournament was conducted. No problems at all. You just keep increasing the prize money and that is a big improvement. Cannot hope for more.
