About the organizer of the event - Dr. N Mahalingam Chess Academy

Vishy Anand inaugurated Dr. N Mahalingam Chess Academy on 21st March 2017 | Photo: Official site

Dr. N Mahalingam Chess Academy was inaugurated on 21st March 2017 by Viswanathan Anand. Since then it has been contributing to the game of chess in various ways, following the path laid by our Founder Dr. N Mahalingam Ayya. The academy has conducted over 20 chess events in the last four years since it was founded. The academy will continue to contribute to the betterment of chess players in every possible way.

Tournaments by Dr. N Mahalingam Chess Academy have always attracted a lot of players...

...of various ages

Vishy Anand himself at a Dr. N Mahalingam Chess Academy event

About the Founder

As the way of the king in chess, it is simple yet magnificent and multi-dimensional, Dr.N Mahalingam played versatile roles in his life such as: a great visionary, an elite scholar, an ardent educationalist, a respected nationalist, a zealous traveler, an unrivalled collector of books, a Gandhian, a writer, a philanthropist, a spiritualist, a man of letters, etc. Arutchelvar Ayya as he is affectionately called by everyone, created history by his achievements in rural economic reconstruction and established unmatched leadership in agriculture, public planning and manufacturing sectors through his Sakthi Group of companies. He was the Founder Chairman of the leading educational institution Kumaraguru College of Technology (KCT). Multifaceted Ayya is a passionate chess player and enthusiast as well.

Ayya’s Contribution to Chess

Ayya became the President of Tamil Nadu State Chess Association in the year 1975.  Ayya, in order to popularize the game among the school students, he took the initiative to include the game in Tamil Nadu State Government’s approved lists of games.  After which, he succeeded in popularizing the game across the various states of India and the game started to have more inclined and devoted enthusiasts soon. Following then, Ayya also served as the President of All India Chess Federation from 1985 to 1989. During this time he took various strategic and reform measures to improvise the game’s popularity among students and other citizens of India. When Mr. D V Sundar, Vice President FIDE, brought to the attention of Dr. N. Mahalingam, that the chess was not included in the list of games, he persuaded the Department of Youth Affairs and Sports Government of India, New Delhi and got it included, in the year 1985.

No draw before 30th move

In all events organized by us, 'Draw offer' before the completion of 30th move is not allowed. If a draw is agreed before the completion of 30th move, the player who offered the draw will be given a loss in that round irrespective of tournament situation. This rule has been enforced to see fighting games on all boards.

Mandatory Zoom Video Call

All players must remain on Zoom Video Call throughout the tournament from 6:15 p.m. IST till the end of the tournament. Players without having their camera turned on during all the games will NOT be eligible for a prize.

When you go to the above link, you will see the above window

2. Click on the 'Login' button at the top. If you have already logged in to Playchess, you can skip this step.

Remember not to click on 'Return to the main playing hall'. In case you do, you may not get paired in the next round. If you mistakenly click there, the only way to get back is to go to the link - ChessBase India Playchess webroom which we have shared earlier. It is recommended to keep the link copied somewhere just in case you need it.

 

3. Now wait in the room, the games will start automatically. Do not play practice matches before the tournament or until the next round begins, else you may not get paired for the following round.

 

4. Do not refresh the browser during the game as it will be considered as a 'Resign' and you will lose. Choose a stable browser so that it does not crash during your game. Also do not refresh the browser after your game, else you may not get paired.

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.
