The seven players are: Glenford Corlette, Craig Sylvester, Shiv Nandalall, Loris Nathoo, Kriskal Persaud, Frankie Farley and Maria Thomas. Thomas is the lone female in the championship.

Vishnu Persaud collects the cheque from Mahesh Itwaru.

Geddes Grant representative, Mahesh Itwaru said the company was pleased to be sponsoring the competition.

“I know it’s the first time for Dr. Chase, but last year we sponsored under Seven Seas. I am sure this event would be a great one because we have high hopes for the chess competition and I do wish everybody good luck.”
