The tournament has also received an event code from the All India Chess Federation, which is 73367/HAR/2012. The tournament would prove to be beneficial to players as they are also going to get points (ratings) as it has been approved by the FIDE, which is the World Chess Federation as well.
The tournament is expected to be played under the Swiss System, which means that each player has to play 10 rounds. The winner gets 1 point, so in the future matches, he will play alongside a player who also has secured a single point. So, if the player also wins his another game, he will play against another player who has secured two points. The same two players will never meet more than once.
There will be no rapid chess competition in the championship, but only traditional chess. Mr Sharma has very little hope if any Indian grandmaster comes for the event, as the prize money in the offering is very less.
