Indian chess community comes together to fight the Corona virus, raises Rs.1,68,000 in 72 hours

by Sagar Shah - 08/04/2020

We still have close to 24 hours to go for the "Let's Fight Corona Together" online blitz. Three days after the tournament was announced we have managed to raise over Rs.1,25,000 thanks to the benevolence of several Indian grandmasters, International Masters and strong players. All the amount will be donated to the PM CARES fund to fight this disaster. The online blitz tournament will be held on 9th of April 2020 and you too can be a part of the same. This endeavour shows how powerful the chess community is when it comes together. Gens Una Sumus - we are one family!

On 5th of April 2020 we announced the "Let's fight Corona together" online blitz tournament to raise funds for India's fight against the Covid19. The tournament will be held on 9th of April 2020 at 8 p.m. IST and all the proceeds will be donated to the PM CARES fund. It gives us immense pleasure to say that we have been able to raise over 1 lakh rupees in less than 72 hours! Here are some of the grandmasters who have not just inspired us with their over the board play, but also with their benevolence and contribution towards the good cause.

India no.2 GM Vidit Gujrathi confirmed that he will not only play at the event, but also stream his games LIVE so that people can follow him and learn from the way he thinks! Whatever money he raises through playing and commenting will be contributed to the donation pool. | Photo: Prague Chess Festival

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 Vaibhav Suri, winner of 2nd ChessBase Online Blitz tournament

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 R R Laxman, multi-time 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.


IM Ravi Teja S, former National Challengers Champion

We (Ravi Teja&Anusha NLV) thoroughly enjoyed the was exciting!


Tushar Bohra, father of Kanishk Bohra

Thanks for enrolling Kanishk for the event. He had a great time playing the games. And a great overall experience.


D Gukesh

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


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 !


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.
