Under 2200 Online Blitz: Entries open until 4 PM Sunday

by Priyadarshan Banjan - 23/07/2017

Four days after announcing the Kasparov Returns! Under 2200 Online Blitz Tournament that is to be held tomorrow (July 23), the tournament has received 50 entries. The tournament is being held in cooperation between ChessMine and ChessBase India and will take place in the Vishy Anand Arena on Playchess download client. While the tournament will be held as scheduled, we have extended the last date of registration until 4 PM tomorrow. Find out who is playing.

Under 2200 Online Blitz: Entries open until 4 PM Sunday

Our understanding is that chess as a sport needs to be commercially more viable and financially more powerful than it is today. The way to do this is by fostering an ecosystem where chessplayers get to use their creativity to play fantastic games of chess, that are in turn rewarded with prizes to make a player's life economically sustainable.

 

Among the other things both ChessBase India and ChessMine do, this tournament is a step towards that day when chessplayers can lead a dignified life by being chessplayers. Of course, nothing happens in a day, and it will probably take years before we see this change materialise.

 

But we had to start. And we have.

 

The event is open for players rated 2200 or below, and is free for the competitors of the ChessMine Rapid and Blitz Open 2017 to be held in Bangalore on August 5, 6, 7.

 

If you are unable to play the main event, India's strongest open tournament in history, you can still play the Under-2200 Online Blitz for an entry fee of Rs. 500.
