GCL: Triveni Continental Kings face upGrad Mumba Masters in finals

DUBAI: It was yet another day of huge upsets at the Tech Mahindra Global Chess League as all the event favourites lost their final matches.

In a shocking outcome, two of the teams which dominated the Global Chess League from the beginning Ganges Grandmasters and SG Alpine Warriors were knocked out of the race for the top two places in the finals.
Instead, it will be Triveni Continental Kings and upGrad Mumba Masters who will fight out for the coveted crown in the finals of the first edition of Tech Mahindra Global Chess League.
Triveni’s journey to the top was the most unlikely. Despite setbacks and a rocky start, they made a triumphant comeback with four consecutive wins.
Meanwhile, upGrad Mumba Masters consistently hovered near the top but struggled in the latter part of the event. Nonetheless, they rallied in the final two rounds, eliminating the tournament leaders, Ganges Grandmasters and SG Alpine Warriors.

They also had a stroke of luck on their side—had Chingari defeated Balan Alaskan Knights in the last match, they would have been the ones reaching the finals. Nevertheless, fortune favours the bold, and the outcome feels well-deserved.
