by Shahid Ahmed - 25/06/2020

On Wednesday 24th June, something unusual happened. For the first time, we had to cancel a ChessBase India Online Blitz event as due to technical issues beyond our control, the tournament was not possible to be completed. So we had to cancel it. So when will Letsup MCA GP Blitz 4 take place? Same time on 1st July at 8 pm IST. And Blitz 5? On 8th July at 8 pm IST. We understand your valuable time and effort, thus to compensate the players we are adding an additional 20% of prize fund to the already announced prize. Total Prize fund for Blitz 4 will be ₹30000 and each prize will be increased by 20%. Those who have already registered for the event, need not do it again. Registration is open for others. Photo: MCA

In Round 7, GM Vugar Rasulov was in trouble for the majority of the game against Irus1997 (GM Vaibhav Suri), however only in the final moments of the game Irus1997 blundered a checkmate allowing Rasulov to score the victory.

Nodirbek Abdusattorov - Winner of Blitz 2 and 3

GM Nodirbek Abdusattorov won both Blitz 2 and 3

In Round 4 of Blitz 2, irus1997 (GM Vaibhav Suri) missed a few winning opportunities after getting a fantastic position against Keramin, Uzbekistan no.2 GM Nodirbek Abdusattorov. Vaibhav had a huge advantage, perhaps time scramble could be the reason behind his misses.

In a battle of Champion vs Champion, GM Vugar Rasulov (Winner of Blitz 1) missed a good opportunity against Keramin (GM Nodirbek Abdusattorov, winner of Blitz 2) in their encounter at Blitz 3.
