AUK Chess Tournament 2009: Final Report!

It was a tense day for the two opponents today. I was more scared than usual. Of course, this is the finals we are talking about. Hassan seemed more confident than I was.

In fact, in both of his games he brought his queen out to Qf6 as black and Qf3 when he played white. I didn’t know how to counter it exactly. So I just played according to Chess Opening Principles. And a few moves from the opening, He was forced to sacrifice his queen for a rook! Hassan fought hard. But when he blundered another piece, even he knew it was over.

Here we are in the presenting of the prizes at the end of the games. Khaled (ME!) is on the left, Hassan is in the middle, and the Supervisor is on the right. (Look at me, I feel so proud! hehehehe!)

The grand prize was an IPOD SHUFFLE (1 gigabyte of space). The second place prize is a 5 KD gift voucher to the Virgin Megastore. If you look at the picture above, I am holding the IPOD in the bag happily :) And here is a picture of the Grand Prize.grand-prize

One way is to bring in another adminstrator to update the site in Arabic!

A tiny Biography

Who I am: (a small biography about me)

My name is Khaled and i am 22 years old. I began to play chess professionally at my second year of university (AUK). The first tournament i joined was the AUK-chess tournament. I lost in a bad way! I was extremely sad. Mohamed Muneer, another kuwaiti chess fan won that tournament.

My first WIN: (don’t read if your not interested in what happened next)

I promised myself to win next year. I trained hard in tactics. Than next year, on the 1st round, i played against Hashem Hussain. I blundered my queen for two knights and a bishop!!! We continued to play and he fell into a trap, i ended up with two extra pieces in the endgame. The final round was against MOHAMED MUNNER! MY RIVAL!!! (ahhhhh) He won the AUK chess-championship 3 times in a row! The opening part was bad for me! I quickly got desperate, lucky for me, Mohamed blundered, i ended up winning his queen. He resigned and i won my first championship!

Sharg tournaments:

I have participated in the sharg tournament 2 years in a row. It’s an amazing experience. Any chess-lover in kuwait has to play in this tournament. It it usually in February or March.

FIDE Ranked Kuwaities:

I played Kuwait’s top player, Faisal Hamlan and he crushed me! I also met and befriended Taher Khateeb and Bader Hajeri. These three kuwaties have fide ELO’s. All are strong.

Other Chess- Friends:

Omran & Ali Moussawi, Nasser & Abdullah Maqseed, Hashem Hussain, Emmanuel, Reda, Mohamed Qabazrd, Mohamed Muneer, Bader Khaldi, Bader Hajeri, Taher Khateeb, Abdulsalam Dakheel, Khalaf Azmi, Waleed Awadhi, Lyon, Noor Aldeen, and many more.  All these people love chess like i do, maybe even more.

Final Comment:

I hope this site will continue to grow. I hope to bring information to everybody here who needs it. And i pray that Chess will be a recognized sport throughout kuwait. Thank you for reading. Be well citizens of kuwait.
