      Dear All,

      I feel honored that one of the GM has joined the open section. Thanks for joining for such a good cause. Attached is the flyer those who want to share across. Every Tue and Friday at 8:30PM EST for 1.5 hrs, there is practice Tournament at https://lichess.org/team/eagleminds-chess-club before the 1st of the Gran-Pri on Jan 31st.

      MY Raju, one of the beneficiary, a former National player and a University Chess Gold Medalist suffering from schizophrenia is likely to join the practice sessions on Tue and Friday to prep for the 1st Tournament. A former 2000+ Rated player(CFC#173088). In the Jan 31st Tournament and subsequent monthly Tournaments, he would get to earn $10 for every game he wins. The effort is to give hope and a platform.

      PK Rajesh, the 2nd beneficiary, a 1130 FIDE rated player undergoing dialysis(3 times a week) for the last 12 years. Spoke to him last week and he is not able to play. However, based on a contribution received, transferred this evening Rs15,000 to his account.

      Thanks and please forward the flyer to your friends and known chess players. Please note, the early bird entry entry ends on Jan 15th and there is late fee post that.

      Regards
