The ChessMate Inter School Team Rapid Rating tournament is the sole team rating event in the country which has no entry fee. The tournament never had any entry fee, yet it has trophies and cash prizes. Since 2018, the tournament became a rapid rating event. After a three year hiatus due to Covid-19 pandemic, the most prestigious Inter-School Team event in Kolkata was back. Naturally, children were delighted to play with their friends and teammates.
South Point High School boasts the maximum number of titled players representing their school in Kolkata, West Bengal – GM Diptayan Ghosh, GM Mitrabha Guha, IM Aronyak Ghosh and IM Koustav Chatterjee.
DPS Ruby Park and Garden High School won the last two editions. However, on the 14th edition, CM Aayush Bhattacherjee, Ritabrata Chakraborty, Shounak Mazumder and Shresth Mahapatra brought the championship back home for the first time since 2017. India’s 72nd, the state and the school’s latest GM Mitrabha Guha being the Chief Guest at the closing ceremony, certainly brought more delight to everyone’s face.
Check out the interview with the winning team.
