June 24: Practice Tournament

Theory and Practice are like the two wings of a bird. This week, apart from the regular classes, we scheduled a free practice tournament at our Anna Nagar space for players to get better at long control games. Moreover, the Under 11 Pondicherry State Chess tournament is scheduled in a few days, so we thought it would be useful for the students. Here are some photos and updates!

[More details: Participants: 8 players. Format: Manual Swiss, I suppose. Average: 1414. Rounds: 4. Time control: 30 + 30. ]

The tournament is also special for another reason. The event was planned only two days back and received only a few entries, but eventually we succeeded in organizing Aspire Chess Center’s first ever tournament 🙂

Our next tournament is scheduled on the 8th of July, 2018. More information can be found in this link.
