by ChessBase India - 10/10/2016

On the rest day of the Olympiad 2016 in Baku, we gave you a picture of Harikrishna eating Roti and a paneer vegetable, and asked you to suggest a funny caption for the picture! The best one was to receive a Master Class Vol.07: Garry Kasparov DVD. The response was overwhelming! There were more than 70 captions in the comments section. In this article we not only announce the winner, but have three extra prizes. We thank each and everyone who commented for their involvement and enthusiasm.

"This was the picture for which we asked you to send your comments. It was taken on the rest day when India was leading the open section with a perfect score of 12.0/12. Harikrishna was to play Anish Giri in the seventh round. 

Because of the overwhelming response we have decided to offer three extra prizes. The best caption, as promised, gets Master Class Vol.07: Garry Kasparov. Next three places get three months of ChessBase Premium Account.


As Harikrishna was to play Anish Giri in the seventh round most of the jokes revolved around the Dutch grandmaster and his tendency towards making draws.
