Six of India's best players will offer simultaneous exhibitions on Chess.com to support the Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund. Set to start on Saturday, April 11, at 6 am Pacific Time (15:00 CEST, 6:30 p.m. Indian Standard Time), former world champion GM Viswanathan Anand will be joined by GMs Pentala Harikrishna, Vidit Gujrathi, Baskaran Adhiban, Humpy Koneru, and Harika Dronavalli as they each will offer a twenty-board simultaneous exhibition for donors to take place on Chess.com. The event will be streamed live on Chess.com/tv, where all donations made during the stream will be sent to the Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund to fight COVID-19.

With over one hundred games running concurrently across all simuls, a time control of 45 minutes with a 45-second increment will be used across all games. To participate in the simul, players must have a Chess.com blitz or FIDE standard rating of under 2000 and will be required to make a donation of $150 during the registration process in order to play the former world champion. 

Update: Registration has now closed but you can make donations directly on our stream at Chess.com/TV
