CAI to hold biggest prize money meet

 
The ‘Delhi All India Open Chess Tournament’ -- a Rs 15 lakh event -- will be held at the Sadhu Vaswani International School for Girls from December 23 to 29. The winner of the event would take home a hefty Rs 3 lakh prize money, CAI president Naveen Kumar Wal told reporters.

CAI has also decided to hold seven tournaments -- each with prize money of Rs five lakh -- at Haryana, Rajasthan, Mumbai, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Chandigarh in the near future. In December next year, the association will organise a championship with cash prize of Rs 25 lakh in Lucknow, CAI Treasurer SK Tewari said. 

The body came into existence on October 11 after a meeting of former AICF members here.
