We congratulate Mallesh for his outstanding performance last week. Co-founder of ATC says ” Congratulations to Mallesh, we have been watching all your games specially the last game is amazing”. He won the last week ATC title. This is the first time he won the title at ATC. Those who don’t know about Mallesh, he is a great chess player and he is working as a coach in reputed school in Secunderabad. He was an average player, 2 years ago, but he is emerging as a strong player. He hails from Mahbubnagar district of Telangana and he guided two players of under 15 to raise their ELO points considerably. His strength is of peer to peer learning started in Tilaknagar with famous players like Shanmukha, never took any coaching. He developed chess skills on his own. He does lot of analysis of his own games. He did coaching to few of the atc players. As a friend who I know about Mallesh lived in below poverty line but beleived in chess which is giving a livelihood for him.
Wish you a Happy Holi to all ATC players. Unfortunately, we have black and white pieces on chess, but once you finish the game your heart will be filled with joy of colours.
