Chess players and fans are hoping that the Olympics can deliver a silver medal in the 2020 Games in Tokyo.
But the Games have been plagued by corruption, and the lack of participation in some events has forced organisers to look for ways to boost participation.
In response, they have created a new tournament in India, the Chess Championship of India.
The event is a tournament of 8 teams, including the national team, the Indian Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Federation of Chess.
The tournament was organized by the Indian Chess Federation and is open to all players.
