The Strongest Open in Indian History is a part of the ACP Tour

 

 

The Association of Chess Professionals (ACP) is a non-profit organization which aims to protect the rights of professional chess players', address their concerns and to promote chess worldwide through the organization of high-level chess tournaments and maintaining a ranking system of the top professionals (The ACP Tour). At the summer of 2015, the ACP united about 1100 chess professionals (International Masters, Grand Masters, International Arbiters and Organisers) from 85 countries. Most of the World's top players, including the previous World Champion Vishwanathan Anand can be found among the ACP members.

 

The ACP Tour is a unique system that unites more than 100 international chess tournaments annually all over the world.The main idea of the ACP Tour is to encompass the most important chess tournaments regardless of their format in a unified 12-month season. Participants in the events receive points according to the rating system developed by the ACP.

Only the most significant international competitions and the strongest national leagues are involved in the ACP Tour. 

The first ACP-Tour started on 1 July 2004 and ended 30 June 2005. India's very own Viswanathan Anand was the champion of the first edition.
