The event was held to raise funds for 'The Akshaya Patra Foundations COVID-19' relief feeding efforts. It was held on June 13 at 5 PM and was live-streamed on Chess.com, India's official YouTube channel.

It is ridiculous that so many are thinking that I really beat Vishy sir in a chess game, that is almost like me waking up and winning a 100mt race with Usain Bolt. 😬 pic.twitter.com/UoazhNiAZV
