Many have become Chess Masters; no one has become the Master of Chess

CHESS, the battle of strategists is a well known world famous game that unfolds true strategists with thinking power and high enduring patience.

This is a two player game bound with strategies and mind blown tactics and finally ends with a ‘checkmate’ that finalizes the whole game. Though the chess game is played individually, it is categorized as a team event as well. Here at the Inter University Games, Chess is assorted as a team event. In each team, 8 players are nominated and in any given round, only 6 players of each team fight with the opponent team. The whole tournament consists of 5 rounds binding up with the Swiss pairing system.

Here the winning team in a game round (the team with more than 3 points from the round), will conquer 2 points and 1 point will be granted for a draw round and no points will be granted for a lost round.

The past champions of Inter University Games who are entitled as the brainy minders of chess whose names are entangling in the golden history of chess are as below.
