Chess KLUB provides an opportunity for students to display their skills practically through our weekly tournaments. Let’s take a look at the winners of the week and some of their brilliant games.

Chess KLUB Swiss Open Tournament

In the Swiss Open Tournament held on Saturday, we had Saket Reddy as our Champion with an impressive score of 6.5 out of 7.

Saket played an exciting game against our second runner-up, Adhvik Manoj, with a score of 5.5. The game began with the Four Knights Game: Italian Variation, and Saket exchanged his Bishop and Knight for Adhvik’s Rook and pawn. Unfortunately, Saket won a pawn in the middle game, and Adhvik blundered his Bishop on the 17th move.

After that, Adhvik posed a severe attack on Saket’s king, and Adhvik blundered his Queen while attacking Saket’s King. Thus, Adhvik had a huge disadvantage that forced him to resign on the 29th move.

Adithiyaa Vasudevan was our runner-up with a score of 5.5 as well. 

Chess KLUB Weekly Open Classic Arena

On Sunday, we had our Weekly Classic Open Tournament with Sabarish Kailasam at the top of the winner list with a win rate of 78%.

Sabarish played an engaging game against the second runner-up Saket Reddy, who had 81%. The game began with the Italian Game Opening, and Sabarish became a pawn up in the middle game. Sabarish then won three pawns, and Sabarish and Saket exchanged a Rook.
