Standing upright with crossed muscular arms, the knight looks ready for a throwdown on the chequered battlefield. Chennai is all set to host the world’s biggest chess tournament, the 44th International Chess Olympiad, scheduled to take place from July 28 to August 10 at Poonjeri Village in Mamallapuram, a UNESCO heritage site, just 50 kilometres from the city. The International Chess Federation (FIDE) elected India to host the event for the first time and Chennai has already set the world record. This is one of the biggest events in the tournament’s history, with nearly 2000 participants from 187 countries in attendance. However, the curtain raiser held on Sunday created another world record becoming the largest Open with 1,414 players taking part in the test tournament where all the games were played on electronic boards.
