Member since Mar-23-08
Hari Om, I am from Bangalore, India. Posters like <Jim Bartle>, <achieve>, <Phony Benoni>, <Once>, <tpstar>, <Eyal>, <dzechiel> and <frogbert> are my favourites here. I strongly dislike disputes amongst themselves.

Thanks to <Annie K.> for the two years of Premium Membership, along with the other anonymous donor!

I am an unrated player simply because I haven't played enough rated tournaments (only 2 so far). My best was a score of 8.5/9 (1st board winner) against fairly amiable opposition (only 2 rated players) in the VIT South Zone Inter University 2011-12 (http://chess-results.com/tnr65631.a...). In the corresponding championship for 2012-13 in Kerala, I scored 7/9 against slightly stiffer opposition, winning the third prize for board 1 (http://chess-results.com/tnr88650.a...). In the 2013-14 edition of the tournament, I drew against an IM, but had an average tournament otherwise, finishing with 5/8 (http://chess-results.com/tnr113417....).

The last summer, I played in a couple of tournaments in Singapore, my first chess tournaments outside India. I won the first one (Challengers section, 30 players) and placed 4th (out of 100+ participants) in the other, despite losing the first round due to the painful zero start rule. (http://chess-results.com/tnr137508.... http://www.chess-results.com/tnr139...)

My ratings at chess.com are about 1850 in classical, and 2000 in blitz and bullet. I have often been a little too eager to simplify and reach the endgame as soon as possible, which has led to many a loss. I prefer playing queenless middle games.

Outside chess, I follow cricket and top-level tennis quite keenly but have never played tennis except for some mild sessions. I also play table tennis, but don't really follow the sport internationally (the top players are usually Chinese and their names are either very hard to remember or they all sound the same!).

shivasuri4: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIDE_... Ju Wenjun is in prime position for now. As long as none of Gunina, Kosteniuk and Harika win the tournament (sole or shared), all she needs to do is finish 4th or above to overtake Humpy. If one of the other three win, Wenjun needs to finish ...
