Mumbai: The first invitational inter-city online team competition on September 20, organised by the South Mumbai Chess Academy (SMCA) turned out to be a highly successful one, especially for players who have a FIDE rating ELO of 1500 and less.

The tournament, which had games in rapid format of 30-40 minutes each came as a breath of fresh air in a world where there’s hardly time and space for people to do anything. “The children of our Academy really enjoyed the competitive nature of the tournament,” C Natarajan, FIDE Arbiter and head of Mastermind Chess Academy in Chennai, said.

The SMCA participated in this competition which also had the Kings’ Chess Academy (KCA) and Maestro Chess Academy(MCA), from Hyderabad, Mastermind Chess Academy (MMCA) and the Chennai, Matrix Chess Academy, Delhi & Gurgaon compete for the top honours.

The competition, which was a toughly contested one had a total of 76 participants. Eleven-year-old Sanmukha Reddy, who won the most points in the tournament (5) said, ”I was really delighted playing the championship which helped me enhance my game.”

The average scores were calculated from the top six performers in each time and SMCA team won the competition with 26.5 points out of 30, just one point more than Chennai’s Mastermind Chess Academy.

Following Sanmukha was Aisha Wadhwani from Matrix Chess Academy, Gurgaon with five points as well. Gokul Ramanathan from Mastermind Chess Academy, Chennai also scored five points.

Nagesh Guttula, the Director and CEO of SMCA said, “With the success of the first Invitational Team Championship, hopefully, we’ll be doubling the participants in the next tournament. Our target is to reach 1000 participants in the months to follow.”

SMCA would organise the second inter-city chess tournament on October 11.
