Today on the deciding day for World Youth Chess Olympiad – 2017 as today’s Round is the ultimate round and finally, the winners will be declared. Another big happening is the inauguration of the first move by the Arbiters of the tournament. It was an amazing gesture by the organisers to call upon all the arbiters of the tournament to come on the dais. The arbiters are the most important part of a smooth operation of a chess tournament. They have handled and operated the tournament in the highest order. Mr. Anantharam Rathinam, Chief Arbiter, Mr. Gopakumar M S, Dy. Chief Arbiter and Mr. Dharmendra Kumar, Dy. Chief Arbiter conducted the first move along with other Arbiters. This is also the only time when all the Indian Arbiters are present in one tournament.
