Madhvendra Pratap Sharma wins the ChessBase India Phoenix Citadel Indore inaugural Blitz Tournament

by Himank Ghosh - 23/03/2023

The second ChessBase India Chess Club was opened on 11th March in the Phoenix Citadel Mall, Indore! To celebrate the occasion, an inaugural Blitz tournament with free entry was arranged in the Chess Club. A total of 65 players took part in this 3+2 Blitz tournament held from 4-7 PM IST at the Phoenix Citadel. One of Madhya Pradesh and India's biggest talents Madhvendra Pratap Sharma bagged the first position with a perfect 6/6! Another tournament will be held this Saturday in the chess club - make sure to join in! 

A great start to the latest ChessBase India Chess Club

FI Niklesh Jain, the Head of Hindi ChessBase India, has worked a lot to grow chess throughout Madhya Pradesh. The regular Khelo Chess India tournaments and the training camp held at Bhopal is a testament of that! The one thing remaining was a place where serious and casual players can come together in a regular basis to play the game. Well, that problem has been solved - we have now opened the ChessBase India Chess Club at Indore! The inaugural 3+2 Blitz tournament started off the Club on a good note.
