Feedback for previous ChessBase India prize money tournaments:
The Fischer online blitz event on 12th March was organised in an exemplary manner. Hope we have more tournaments of this stature in future.
The tournament was well organised. I had a blast playing in this tournament :) It was a good experience playing without time increment. -Aashna Makhija
