Feedback for the first ChessBase India prize money tournament:

Great management....First time played a tmt with no problems...This was my first online tournament.....And had a great experience hope you all organise this type of tournaments quite frequently.....Would love to participate in your future tournaments

-Ambarish Sharma

 

Thank you. It was really a nice and enjoyable tournament. Hope in future also ... If this kind of tournament once in a month happen it will be brilliant... 
-Mithu Dey (on behalf of Shahil)

Although the tournament was organized well,I felt that that referee 1 was somehow inactive. Other than that everything was fine.

-Rahul Shrivatshav

 

The Fischer online blitz event on 12th March was organised in an exemplary manner. Hope we have more tournaments of this stature in future.

-GM R.R. Laxman
It was an awesome tournament. I look forward to playing more in such events.
-Snehal Bhosale
Thank you ChessBase India for arranging strongest online Fischer blitz event. I have played against high rated players including IMs and increased Playchess ELO from 1953 to 2008! There is nothing better than this a chess player can ask for. Seating at the home on perfect Sunday evening, sipping coffee and playing against famous players in India. Thank you so much for everything!
- Nikhil Joshi

I must congratulate ChessBase India for promoting events like this to encourage chess players on Online. Hope all the participants were able to enjoy playing this tournament without any glitch. The opportunity provided by ChessBase India is a welcome move.

- N.V.Nagesh (father of Badri Naryanan)

 

The tournament was very well conducted. I enjoyed playing the tournament. Maybe if possible next time you can use fide rating instead of the playchess rating as many new players started with low ratings. On the whole it was a very good tournament.
- Arjun Kalyan
Loved the tournament. Was fun playing against such a strong field without leaving the house. Everything went smoothly and there were no real problems once it began. The only issue I had was the 20 minute delay to start the round. But I guess it's OK since it's the first time. Overall, great experience and would definitely play again. Great work guys. 
P. S-The bonus prizes are a nice incentive for players like me. :P
-Likhit Chilukuri
The tournament was well organised. I had a blast playing in this tournament :) It was a good experience playing without time increment. 
-Aashna Makhija
Excellent start.  Hope to play more events like this in future.
With warm regards...
-Nihal Sarin
The tournament was organized pretty well.. I liked this concept of online blitz tournament. Thank you for organizing this event.
-Akhilesh Nagare
I was very fascinated to play in an online blitz tournament for the first time! I did not play my best but I hope that from the next time, I expect more online tournaments from my own country, Chessbase India! I like everything of this tournament! But one thing the time control was without any increment. It ruined the quality of some games. But I hope Chessbase India will look after it and I am already excited to play in the next online blitz tournament!
-Rajdeep Sarkar
Thank you for your hard work!. Everything is just perfect for me. 
-Priyanka Nutakki
It was a great initiative on the part of Chess base India. Hope you are able to do on a regular basis. It was a great opportunity n looking forward to many more.
