hi everybody.............

my name is kartik and i am from india. chess has been my hobby since i was a child. after i was first introduced to the game at a very tender age i became very fond of it and began playing it whenever i had an opportunity. i guess time has come for me to take chess more seriously than just a hobby.

this post is intended to help me in this regard. i want to know how to apply for various tournaments and what all needs to be done to play this game professionally. i consider myself as just a beginer as i havent been part of any professional tournament.

i request all the seniors out there to help and guide me in this matter as to how to become a professional chess player.

i end this post here...............your comments and responses awaited.
