The Ganges Grandmasters displayed dominance by securing a convincing victory of 10-4 against the Chingari Gulf Titans in Dubai. In another exciting match, the Mumba Masters emerged victorious with a thrilling 8-7 win over the Triveni Continental Kings.

Anand, a five-time world champion, demonstrated his exceptional skills and took advantage of playing with the white pieces to outsmart Jan-Krzysztof Duda, the winner of the 2021 World Cup.
