by Sagar Shah - 04/11/2017

The first Friday tournament is into its second edition. The November IM norm round robin tournament has a grandmaster playing in the form of GM Niaz Murshed. Two Indian players have also made their way to the event - recently crowned under-17 National Champion Rithvik Raja and YVK Chakravarthy. We would like to remind you that in the first ever edition of First Friday in October youngster D.Gukesh made his maiden IM norm. Here you can watch the live games of the event. Rounds begin at 6.30 a.m. and 1.30 p.m. IST every day.
