The programme, organised by Microsense Networks, will begin on Wednesday and play host to six Grandmasters and eight International Masters

According to Kramnik, the heads will focus on openings during the camp, which will take place at secluded surroundings in the East Coast Road here. “We (Kramnik and Gelfand) will work on those during our time here,” said the 44-year-old.

“We will do our best to impart the opening knowledge we have gathered after years of practical experience at the highest level. I am looking forward to meeting the youngsters and working with them,” he added.
