Moreshwar Bhagwat (MD) Memorial Open Online chess tournament


Get Set for a GRAND EVENT by ADCC!!

Late Moreshwar Bhagwat Memorial online chess Tournament is organized by Ahmednagar District Chess Circle to give a tribute to a great personality. He was a former National ‘A’ player as well as a “Shiv Chhatrapati Award” winner. This event will be sponsored by Shantikumarji Firodiya memorial foundation.

The prize fund is Rs 21000/- and the entry fee is Rs100/- until 4 august. From 5 August it will be Rs150/-.
ADCC is the only district association to have organized online chess tournaments for their own district in lockdown to keep up and grow the online chess culture. The team organized a series of 10 free tournaments out of which 8 had Rs 2000 as a prize fund. ADCC aims to use the time to encourage more people to take up chess and so they came up with the prize of “Best Parent” at the later stages of the series.
Mr. Narendra Firodiya personally sent a video on the group to encourage everyone for that series and also provided sponsorship for the same. With his motivating words, the number of participants reached a peak of 88!! Just from one district reaching this number was a tremendous achievement. The team also took care of the fair play by keeping a constant check on the games. A lot of players who quit chess long back due to office, academics, etc came back and had a great time.

The association backed by Shantikumarji Firodiya Memorial Foundation now goes one step ahead to organize a national level online blitz event. With the Motto “An organization for the players made by the players” ADCC wants to spread chess as much as possible. The team led by Mr. Yashwant Bapat has always brought innovative ideas when it came to over the board chess. May it be distributing sweets during tournaments to celebrate birthdays of participants or organizing rating tournaments twice a year. Maharashtra Chess League was a grand team event in India but it only consisted of top players. So to conduct an event for the untitled players the team came up with innovative ideas like “Players Chess League” where they gave equal importance to unrated players by putting criteria of 3 rated players and 2 unrated players in one team. They used to distribute snacks for the players, parents, and almost everyone present in the playing hall.
The team also organized camps of foreign GrandMasters so the players from Nagar district can know how a Grandmaster thinks. These camps proved to be fruitful as various players scaled new heights. To increase chess at the grassroots level, by conducting regular rating events the team managed to contribute over 500 number of rated players.
With the above efforts, one can get a hold of how much the team loves chess and wishes to spread it in all directions. To participate in this Grand Event Contact – Mr. Yashwant Bapat – 9326092501. You can check the circular from here.
