Division Toppers.... Go Dynamite
Delhi Dynamite had a great run in the league stage of the inaugural Pro Chess League 2017. With four wins, two draws and one loss, the team managed to clinch the first rank. We have now got a bye in the first round of the play-offs. We would have to play four matches to qualify for the semi-finals.
The Dynamite team has had the likes of Sahaj Grover, Salem Saleh, Tejas Bakre, Abhijeet Gupta, Lalith Babu, Tania Sachdev, Nihal Sarin, Vaibhav Suri, Nishant Malhotra, and Aradhya Garg playing the team matches. Tejas Bakre has had a fine run winning all his matches in the league. Salem Saleh has also done his team proud by winning four matches out of four in Week 5. Sahaj Grover has had a chance to draw against the World Champion Magnus Carlsen. Aradhya and Nihal have been the junior stalwarts of our team, winning crucial matches with ease.
All this has only been possible with the help of our team coach IM Vishal Sareen, who has made the correct choices for team pairings and has boosted the moral of the team.
Delhi Dynamite looks forward to the play-offs, which is one more step towards glory. Let's rock it Dynamite!
