8 Reasons why you shouldn't miss the Chess960 event tonight on ChessBase India

by Sagar Shah - 18/07/2020

What an amazing star studded event we are going to witness on the 18th of July 2020 on ChessBase India. It's the late M.D. Bhagwat Memorial blitz sponsored by Buddhibal Kreeda Trust. The format is Chess960 and a total prize fund of Rs.50,000 is at stake. The top seed of the tournament is Vidit Gujrathi, who will not just play the event but also stream it LIVE on his YouTube channel. He will be given stiff resistance by the Beast (Adhiban), Aravindh Chithambaram, Karthikeyan Murali, Gukesh, Raunak Sadhwani and several other Indian youngsters. This is your last chance to register for the event and play in the same tournament as the biggest names in the world of chess!

There are several reasons why you should be playing the chess960 event that will be held on 18th of July 2020 on Playchess. Here are a few of them:

1. To remember the great M.D. Bhagwat

The tournament is held in the loving memory of an ex-National A player, a revered International arbiter and a well-known organizer. He was also the recipient of the prestigious Shiv Chatrapati award. It would be a wonderful gesture to play in the tournament and remember the great chess lover.

2. A total prize fund of Rs.50,000 and first prize of Rs.12,000

Prakash Kunte with his better half. Prakash is the founder of Buddhibal Kreeda Trust the sponsor the event

The tournament has been sponsored by Buddhibal Kreeda Trust. It is one of the organizations that has been working tirelessly for chess players for three decades now. Under the leadership of Prakash Kunte (father of GM Abhijit Kunte and WIM Mrunalini Kunte) BKT has organized several online events. The Chess960 event is one more such fine initiative which is meant for the benefit of the players.

7. Highly original chess in the Chess960 format

Fischer Random also known as Chess960 is the format in which the tournament is going to be held. You do not need to know any opening theory and you can just play you heart out!

Make sure you know the castling rules, which are very well explained in this article.

Check out Sagar's video on a test 960 event which he organized on 17th of July

8. Time control of 3+1

Usually tournaments held on Playchess are without any increment. As this is a chess960 event, it has an increment of 1 second. This can make sure that if you land up in a winning position with extra material with very less time on the clock, you can still take the game to its logical conclusion.

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.
