Chess KLUB provides all students a platform to display their skills every week. Let’s take a look at the games that took place in in the past week along with our winner list.

Chess KLUB May Championship

This week we had the Chess KLUB May Championship, where we had 81 participants compete against each other.

Sanjey Ramachandran was the champion with a great score of 8 out of 9, with his most interesting game being against Adhvik Manoj, our runner-up, who had a score of 7. The game began with the Four Knights Game: Italian Variation, and the two exchanged their Queens in the middle game.

On the 20th move, Sanjey made a Bishop blunder giving Adhvik an advantage. Adhvik then created a passed pawn, and the two exchanged one of their Rooks. Soon Adhvik created another passed pawn that forced Sanjey to resign on the 47th move. In the third position, we had Parv Parikh with a score of 7 as well.

Chess KLUB Weekly Open

Chess KLUB Weekly Open held on Sunday had Jethin Bastin as the Champion of this tournament with a perfect win rate of 100%. Jethin played an engaging game against Rishab Ghosh, our second runner-up, who had a wonderful win rate of 83%.

The game began with Rishab playing the Giuoco Piano Opening, and the two exchanged their Queens early into the game. Jethin blundered his Bishop in the middle game followed by Rishab falling for a knight fork posed by Jethin. Jethin then made a passed pawn.

Rishab had to sacrifice his knight to stop this passed pawn from becoming a Queen. Jethin now had a massive advantage to create another passed pawn that converted into a Queen. Jethin checkmated Rishab on the 64th move.

In second place, we had Saket Reddy with a win rate of 79%. 

Chess KLUB Intermediate Tournament

In the Chess KLUB Intermediate Tournament, we had Aarav Patel at the top of the winner list with an amazing win rate of 75%, followed by Sabarish Kailasam with a fabulous win rate 86% in second place.

The two played an excellent game against each other in the first round. The game began with the Caro Kann Defense, and Aarav became a pawn up in the middle game. The two then exchanged their Queens, and Aarav gained another pawn. Aarav then created a passed pawn that he converted into a Queen. Aarav finally checkmated Sabarish on the 71st move with his Queen and King.

Havish Venkat was our second runner-up with a perfect win rate of 100%. 

Chess KLUB Wednesday Weekly Tournament

In the second Weekly Tournament held this week, we had Sabarish Kailasam as our champion with an excellent win rate of 88%.

Sabarish played an aggressive game against our second runner up Havish Venkat. Sabarish began the game with the Ruy Lopez opening, and the two exchanged their Queens early into the game. In the middle game, Sabarish lost his Rook, but he regained this Rook by posing a pin on Havish’s King and Rook.

Sabarish then gained a knight by pinning Havish’s knight and King. Sabarish then made a passed pawn that forced Havish to resign.

In the second place, we had Sanjey Ramachandran with a win rate of 67%.
