A server outage resulted in India and Russia sharing the trophy in the FIDE online Chess Olympiad on Sunday. Nihal Sarin and Divya Deshmukh were initially deemed to have lost their matches on the basis of time running out, after the internet connection faltered. Both Indians were holding good positions in their contests. However, a little while later, the International Chess Federation decreed that the two teams be declared joint winners.
The eventual decision came as a relief to the Indians, because when the server crashed and the screens went still, panic had set in amidst the contingent, scattered across different parts of the country. “I did not know what was happening. No one knew how to deal with the situation,” non-playing skipper Narayanan Srinath told official website chessbase.com in the post-match interview before the final verdict had been announced.

The Indians nursed little hope, as FIDE had been stern with the implementation of the internet-outage rule, which states that it’s players’ prerogative to ensure stable internet connectivity. A few days ago, in the quarterfinal against Armenia, India had an internet disruption working in their favour, though in their group game against Mongolia, they had to settle for a draw after the connection went kaput.
So, the strain of pessimism was not unfounded. “I was not hopeful (that FIDE would overturn the decision),” admitted Srinath.
We are the Champions!! 🇮🇳🥇Super happy!
Congrats to Russia as well! #ChessOlympiad
The eventual result came as a pleasant surprise for the Indian team. Anand’s tweet summed up the bitter-sweetness of the feeling aptly: “We are the champions. Congrats Russia!” Humpy felt it was strange. “Well, it is a bit strange that we lost due to server failure and our appeal was accepted. Well I can say, we fought till the end,” she tweeted.

India's top chess players, including talented youngsters such as R Praggnanandhaa, D Gukesh, Nihal Sarin and national champion Aravindh Chithambaram will take part in the Indian Chess.com League to be played online from May 15-17.
A total of 10 teams will take part in the tournament which will see the participation of over 25 Indian Grandmasters.
The tournament's main vision is to bring out the best players of our country to play against each other in a team format, the organisers said.
GM Priyadarshan Kanappan, the league commissioner said, "The Sports League was something that I had been very familiar with as I lived in the US where you had leagues for all sports; so I always used to wonder if we could replicate that format in India, and that's how this league idea happened."
