Gulbarga District Chess Association and a renowned Arbiter, Mr. Promod are conducting first-ever Rapid FIDE rating tournament at Paul Hari’s Auditorium, Rotary Club School, Public Garden, Gulbarga.
1st GDCA Open:
Gulbarga Rapid Tournament is good for the players who aspire to improve their FIDE rating in Rapid format, and to see how your reflexes work in a time-pressured environment.
Last week, we have sponsored Mr. J. Harender to play a FIDE rating tournament at Benguluru conducted by ChessMine.
This week, we have announced one more sponsorship for 1st GDCA Rapid FIDE rating tournament. After we have announced on our WhatsApp group, we have received tremendous response from ATC players. Looking at the response, we want to announce that we would limit the number of players that we will sponsor to 5.
Terms and Conditions for the 1st GDCA Tournament Sponsorship:
1. ATC chess player has to get 1100 ATC Rating by end of this Thursday for this week.
2. ATC will sponsor the tournament FEE only.
3. ATC is not responsible for any other costs incurred by the player.
Our ATC star players have performed exceptionally good at recently concluded ChessMine tournament held at Bengaluru.
One of our star player AIM Trisha's achievements at Benguluru are:
1. Drawn with one of India's top most GM Sahaj Grover.
2. Drawn with WIM Thipsay Bagyashree Sathe.
3. Won against IM Hegde Ravi Gopal.
Trisha received a lot of encouragement from her ATC co-players such as Y. Sameer Kumar, Chetan Sharma, J. Harender and AIM Tarun. These ATC players were also playing in the tournament. The recent ChessMine Tournament has created history in Indian Chess by bringing together 15 GMs in a total strength of 400 plus players. A perfect example of quality tournament.
Finally, Rakhi was celebrated at Benguluru. Although, Trisha is an Irish national, she follows all the Indian tradition as she doesn't forget her Indian origins. She gave a big surprise to her Big Brother Chetan Sharma and Fatty Brother Tarun Kanyamarala by carrying Rakhis all the way from Hyderabad, and tied to them in Bengaluru.
We thank all the ATC players, parents and well wishers who congratulated her on each winning. This has boosted her morale very high.
