Babazada Khazzar

I played my 4th round against Babazada Khazzar, he is from Azerbaijan, My rating is 300 points below his rating. His nature of crazy actions made me to win against him.

On behalf of ATC, I congratulate Mr. Govindlal Sharma for winning this week ATC title. It is a great opportunity I am missing to play and learn from Mr. Govindlal Sharma. Chess is a game where, passion towards chess outpaces software’s or any other learning material. I digged superkidschess archives and found that in 2014 at this same place  Mr. Govindlal Sharma won best Veteran, but now in the same venue, with lot more young and dynamic chess players he is  winning titles week on week. You can read our archive here.

Batumi 7th round

European Championships, Batumi  7th round, here we go with few interesting games which Irish lad played. I had a bad start at Georgia, but I made nearly 100 points up so far. The 7th round opponent is an International Master from Vienna, Austria. He had a tremendous experience and he played with highly experienced players like Topalov Veselin.

ATC players, don’t loose hope if you had a bad start Mondays, this is what I implemented in my case, and success following from the subsequent rounds.

I hope Mr. Govind Sharma Ji will fulfill his dream of crossing 1200 at ATC. As far as I know only Mr. Suresh Duvvala crossed this physiological mark of 1200  at AnyTimeChess long ago. You can read about Mr. Suresh record on this link.

Congratulations to Mallesh

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.
