ČEZ CHESS TROPHY 2022

Indian-themed festival in Prague

[11.05.2022 00:00:00] - 

A traditional Prague chess festival ČEZ CHESS TROPHY is coming back, and this year it is going to be all about India. Young Indian grandmasters are dominating tournaments all over the world - right now, India has seven players in the top 100, and another eleven are close to joining the ranks! On top of that, India has seven grandmasters between the ages of 15 and 18.
This year´s opponent of the best Czech player David Navara is going to be S.L. Narayanan from Kerala. They will compete in a match consisting of 10 games of rapid chess, and the festival will take place between May 31 and July 3 in Michna Palace on Kampa. Grandmaster Narayan (24 years) is in the top 100, and his ELO is 2661, just under the rating of David Navara (2682), so it should be a close fight.


In addition to grandmaster Narayanan, more Indian chess players are invited, and even the accompanying presentations will be on the Indian-theme. You can look forward to a lecture about the King´s Indian Defence or a quiz from the best games of the former world champion Viswanathan Anand, which will test your tactical skills. You can find more details about the festival on the ČEZ Chess Trophy Facebook page.


The Indian-themed ČEZ CHESS TROPHY 2022 builds not only on last year´s charitable simul in the Municipal house that was aimed at helping covid stricken India but also on ČEZ CHESS TROPHY 2011 when the main guest was non-other than Viswanathan Anand. He played a simul against 26 opponents, and even the then president of the Czech Republic Václav Klaus came to see it.
