Pune: Red Bull Battle for the Queen with Woman Grandmaster Tania Sachdev will be held in Pune on Friday, November 30.
After a successful edition in Bangalore two months back, the Intra-Corporate Blitz Chess Championship will take place for Blueridge employees wherein they will stand a chance to play against the Chess Queen herself simultaneously.
Chess enthusiasts will get a chance to challenge one of India’s top chess players to a tactical battle.
All one has to do is participate in Red Bull Battle for the Queen and finish among the top eight for a chance to go up against WGM Tania Sachdev.
The event will be held at Blueridge Phase 2 IT7 and IT9 Reception Lobby from 11am onwards.
Interested players may register at redbull.in/battleforthequeen.
The tournament will be played under FIDE’s Blitz Chess rules over 9 to 11 rounds depending on the number of participants who qualify.
In case of a tie, the Bucholz tiebreak system will be used to determine the final placing.
“The Red Bull Battle for the Queen corporate event is a great initiative by Red Bull. Playing a clock simultaneously against top 8 finishers from the qualifiers, sprinting across boards and trying to keep it all together will be an exciting challenge,” said Sachdev.
