The Times of India, Jun 04 2016

Women Grandmaster Bhakti Kulkarni won the Asian Women and Open Chess Championship title in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and booked herself a seat at the World Chess Championship. A rank outsider when the continental meet began in Tashkent, Bhakti was seeded 16th from among 34 top Asian chess players. She played aggressively , took an early lead with a scintillating win over top seeded Sarasadat (Iran) in the fourth round and, since then, never looked back. Bhakti was unbeaten in the championship and picked up $5,000 as prize money.

“I got a fighting draw against Vietnamese Grandmaster Hoang Thi Bao Tram. I am delighted with this performance.": She said
