How to play tournament?

Please ensure that you have a valid Playchess id. You can create one here and make sure you are only on a desktop or laptop browser. It is independent of Operating System. Mobile and tablet devices are not allowed.

Playchess Desktop Client

Those who are familiar with the Playchess Desktop Client can play from the free software. In case you do not have it yet, download it from here. Note: It is not mandatory to install to play this tournament as you can play the tournament via browser too.

1. Scroll down to the very end of the 'Rooms' tab and locate 'Club Rooms from Web'.

Select 'Club Rooms from Web'

2. Now select 'ChessBaseIndia' under 'Club Rooms from Web'.

Select 'ChessBaseIndia'

3. You should be able to see your username in the 'Players' tab. In this case I can see 'Referee 2' as myself. If it shows 'Guest10325' that means you have not logged in properly. Close the software and log back in again.

You should be able to see your username as highlighted here

Using web browser

1. Go to the ChessBase India webroom from any browser.

When you go to the above link, you will see the above window

2. Click on the 'Login' button at the top. If you have already logged in to Playchess, you can skip this step.

You will get this screen when you click on 'Login'

Now you have to type your username in the 'Name' field and password in 'Password'. Remember to keep your username/Playchess id short so that it's easy to remember and do not forget your password or share it with anyone. Select 'Login' once you are done typing your login credentials.

Click on 'Login' after typing your username and password credentials

Once you are logged in, you will see the following screen:

You will be able to see your username - for e.g. Dnumber23

Remember not to click on 'Return to the main playing hall'. In case you do, you may not get paired in the next round. If you mistakenly click there, the only way to get back is to go to the link - ChessBase India Playchess webroom which we have shared earlier. It is recommended to keep the link copied somewhere just in case you need it.

 

3. Now wait in the room, the games will start automatically. Do not play practice matches before the tournament or until the next round begins, else you may not get paired for the following round.

 

4. Do not refresh the browser during the game as it will be considered as a 'Resign' and you will lose. Choose a stable browser so that it does not crash during your game. Also do not refresh the browser after your game, else you may not get paired.

 

4. Please do not click on 'Video' tab. The video and audio will be checked for anti-cheating measures via 'Zoom' only.

Do not click on 'Join with Video' or 'Join with Audio' for this event

Note: The Playchess ID, while registering and playing the tournament should be the same. Incorrect Playchess IDs will not get paired and last minute changes will not be allowed. So please be careful.

About online tournaments on Playchess by ChessBase India:

ChessBase India has organized innumerable online events successfully. Here is some feedback about the quality of the events:

GM D Gukesh, youngest GM of India

I am extremely happy to have participated in my first online blitz tmt conducted by ChessBase India and loved the experience and thrill. from the start to the finish its professionally conducted and got the rare opportunity to play several high-class players in a single event and looking forward for its next event

 

GM Vaibhav Suri, winner of 2nd ChessBase Online Blitz tournament and Letsup MCA Grand Prix

The tournament was conducted quite smoothly and a quite "fun Sunday" event. The participation of Adhiban & Sethuraman definitely added the spark to the event. I guess an Online Blitz Festival would be the next way to go (with different formats - Chess960, Bughouse, Bullet etc). Overall really happy with such events. Way to go!!

 

GM Shyam Sundar M, 31st GM of India

It was such a interesting and a unique event. I hope these events happen quite often so that people cannot cheat with computer assistance and are forced to play genuinely. I thank the organising team for making this event happen smoothly :)

 

GM R R Laxman, former National Blitz Champion

I thank the  Chessbase India team once more for their strenous and tireless endeavour to popularise blitz events in India. Considering the fact that the present day time control  even in classical format ( unlike the yesteryears)  demands quick reflexes and blitz skills  , I feel that the entire Chessbase India team is doing an exemplary and praiseworthy job. A boon for Indian chess !!!. Though my performance this time was not satisfactory ,I hope to excel and cherish more pleasant memories from my side in the forthcoming editions of Chessbase India blitz events.

 

GM Andrey Devyatkin, Russia

What I do find strange is that the share of chess960 tournaments in the great many online chess events held during the Corona crisis has been extremely small. FIDE seems to have lost all the enthusiasm it has demonstrated last year with regard to chess960, whereas other organisers have been either following suit or being habitually conservative, traditional and cautious -- which is quite characteristic for the chess world in general, and sometimes counterproductive at that. But wait... how on Earth can one remember the different rules for castling? Even though it might create great opportunities for our game yet unknown, wouldn't that be too challenging for the modest memory of an ordinary chess player? One has to leave some room for 25-moves analyses in the Najdorf and the Grunfeld, after all...

Meanwhile, whenever a rare prize chess960 event does take place online, it usually brings together many decent players -- which could be seen from this tournament as well -- and gets a very good feedback. So, thank you Chessbase India and Buddhibal Kreeda Trust for breaking the spell of cautiousness and hosting this event!

The tournament was smoothly organised and fun to play. To me it looked no weaker than some open Indian Championship. That said, I think chess960 in general requires longer time controls so its real depth could be revealed, but when it comes to online play and its specificity 3+1 or 3+2 is OK. Also it was nice to know afterwards that the organizers were providing a live commentary.

Let me finish this by quoting Robert Fischer, the great inventor of chess960 (which he himself preferred to call 'Fischerandom'). During his only meeting with Kirsan Ilyumzhinov in 1995, Fischer asked the newly-elected FIDE president: 'Why do you offer people a black and white television set, when there is a set in color?'

 

Amardeep Bartakke

Very strong tournament and very well orgnized, very happy to play among the strong Grandmasters, looking forward to many more such events

 

Amit Mahajan

A heartly Thanks to CHESSBASE INDIA Team for organizing this event. It was a great event with exciting chess format. I will adore to play more chessbase India events in the future. Great Initiative, Good luck.

 

Priti Mahendru, mother of Jaiveer Mahendru

This was our second chessbase online blitz event. My son is 8 years and it was an absolute thrill for him to be playing against titled players ! Thanks a lot for organizing this. We look forward to more such events !

 

CM Kushagra Mohan

I was happy the way the tournament was conducted. No problems at all. You just keep increasing the prize money and that is a big improvement. Cannot hope for more.
