I have grown up under the guidance of chess mentor of world class reputation and that is where my interest developed in this game. I learnt the finer aspects of this game from internationally renowned players and participated in several national level tournaments. As a player, the tactical play and end games are my greatest strength in this game. I have been running Siddhachal Chess Academy since year 2013 and imparting my knowledge and experience.
