Around 100 players are expected to take part in the day-long tournament, which is open for all. Some Tk 2.5 lakh will be distributed among the winners.

"To decide the champions of the tournament, we need to play at least 60 boards. We hope the tournament will be held in a festive mood," said tournament committee convener ATM Moazzem Hossain.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was Wednesday handed a two-match touchline ban and fined £10,000 ($13,000) by the Football Association following an angry clash with a referee.

The Argentine, whose side reached the Champions League quarterfinals with a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, was sanctioned over the incident involving referee Mike Dean after last month's 2-1 Premier League loss at Burnley.

It means he will have to sit in the stands when Spurs visit his former club Southampton on Saturday and also for the league game against Liverpool on March 31.
