Magic player

Kerala magician is a frontliner in Chess


Kottayam: For 36-year-old Jismon, his fingers do wonders not only on the magic stages but also on the Chess board. Thus magician Jism stands atop the rook of magic, grabbing the coveted title of being a Chess player of international ranking. The World Chess Federation, FIDE (Fédération Internationale des Échecs) has recently certified him as a player of international standards. After checkmating his counterparts, this knight emerged a winner, during a tournament held in Palakkad a couple of months back. He became hatrick champion in chess of the Mahatma Gandhi University, since 1993. Now he is working as a Mathematics teacher at the St. Augustine’s Higher Secondary School, Ramapuram.
