Delhi Dynamite’s Season 2 of the PRO Chess League

Delhi Dynamite had a superb run at the Second Season of the PRO Chess League. The team finished as runner’s up in the Eastern Division and qualified for the play-offs losing narrowly in the final moments of the match against the Mumbai Movers,who were represented by Vishy Anand and Vidit Gujrathi on boards 1 and 2.

The Delhi Dynamite team finally found its super GM in Grandmaster Harikrishna Pentala who scored 6 points out of 8 games in the league. I would like to thank my guide and coach IM Vishal Sareen and my Grandmaster friend Abhijeet Gupta for bringing him to play for us.

My experience of working with this team was phenomenal. I got to stream live on TwitchTV, interviewed players for our YouTube channel, wrote articles on different platforms, got interviewed myself for Hindustan Times Sport and India Today, managed the player queries, got to see the players’ reactions on our Zoom chat, and much more. It was really interesting to understand how the player line-ups function and what team would work in each match.

In the end, I was quite upset that we didn’t get a chance to go to the first e-sports finale in San Francisco in April. However, I feel that whatever happens, happens for the best. Overall, it was a great journey for all of us. Winning and losing is all a part of the game.

Now, I look forward to fielding a stronger team for the third season, where we-The DYNAMITE- see ourselves qualified for next year. Till then, I hope to organise more chess events for the Delhi Dynamite and let’s see where we go. I love chess and my passion for chess urges me to do more for my team.
