    Yes it's great to have so many chess tournaments in Asia and not just India. Chess tourism is certainly becoming hot here! I am myself going to play in Bangladesh and Thailand though I am an amateur. It's great all this interest in chess. I would also like to congratulate you Chess Queen for bringing this hip, glamorous image to chess. No longer can anyone say women are dumb or play chess weaker than men. You are a star. Wish you all the best.
