Feedback for previous ChessBase India prize money tournaments:
Great management....First time played a tmt with no problems...This was my first online tournament.....And had a great experience hope you all organise this type of tournaments quite frequently.....Would love to participate in your future tournaments
Although the tournament was organized well,I felt that that referee 1 was somehow inactive. Other than that everything was fine.
The Fischer online blitz event on 12th March was organised in an exemplary manner. Hope we have more tournaments of this stature in future.
I must congratulate ChessBase India for promoting events like this to encourage chess players on Online. Hope all the participants were able to enjoy playing this tournament without any glitch. The opportunity provided by ChessBase India is a welcome move.
