Some of the best chess players in the country tested their mettle, on round three and four of the All India FIDE Rated Open Chess Tournament, here on Tuesday.

The ten round event is being organised by the Mysore District Chess Association. As many as 200 participants from across the country are competing in the tournament, which will culminate on April 1.

The competition was inaugurated on Monday, where two rounds were held.
Several FIDE rated players were part of the competition, striving to improve their international rankings.
