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!
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.
