Thejkumar and Ashwin Jayaram share first in National Challengers in India

The 51st National Challengers (National ‘B’) Chess Championship 2013 took place from 12th to 22nd October at the T.T.Nagar Stadium, in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh.

The event was organized by the Academy of Chess Education Bhopal, M.P. State Level Chess Association, Sports & Youth Welfare Dept. Govt., on behalf of All India Chess Federation.

272 players competed in the 13-round Swiss open tournament.

IM Thejkumar M.S of Railways became National Challengers Champion

International Masters Thejkumar M. S. and Ashwin Jayaram tied the first place with 10,5 points each, leaving the nearest followers a full point behind.

Debashis Das, who shared third place, completed the requirements for the GM title and becomes first Grandmaster from Odisha state.

Top 9 finishers of this Championship qualify for forthcoming National Premier (National ‘A’) Championship. It is curious that only one Grandmaster in the field, Deepan Chakkravarthy, succeeded.
