What this tournament means to competitors like Pranav Shankar:

A disability should never limit a bright individual. Grandmaster Thomas Luther from Germany, and Beatriz Marinello, a Woman International Master made this tournament possible. Beatriz’s company, Chess Educators run the tournament under FIDE to make it official.
