Vaseegaran crosses 2200 and achieves National Master title!

A young man holding chess pieces stands in front of a pond with a large building in the background, with text overlays naming him as Vaseegaran Kalbhari, The National Master, from Chess Gaja's online chess lessons.

Vaseegaran from Texas, USA recently competed in two chess tournaments on May 7 and May 8, 2023, namely the 2023 DFW FIDE 3 (TX) and SUNDAY SWISS 05072023 (TX) events. He won three games at the 2023 DFW FIDE 3 (TX) tournament and won all four games at the SUNDAY SWISS 05072023 (TX) tournament, resulting in a perfect record of 7 wins out of 7 games.

This outstanding performance increased his rating from 2188 to 2201 and earned him the title of National Master.

Vaseegaran joined our Chess Gaja Academy on October 2021, when he had a USCF rating of 2027. His dedication and hard work combined with personalized one-on-one training by GM Priyadharshan and the team of coaches in Chess Gaja have helped him achieve the National Master title in just 1.5 years’ time.

We are thrilled about Vaseegaran’s achievement, and we wish him more success in future tournaments.
