I am a chess fan who would like to see chess grow in Kuwait. I am sure there are a lot of people like me here and this site is for you.

    Just want to know about the tournament schedule. I am assuming that it will be like one round per day for 9 days continously. If that is the case, at what time normally the round starts. You can say from your experience from last year’s tournament.


  2. kadsawy says:

    Hi Navaneeth,

    Yes! 1 round per day and there is 9 rounds. The tournament lasts 10 days. There is one day break in between the rounds. And the rounds usually start at 7 P.M.

    Hope that helped 🙂

    Hi Basem!

    The rate didn’t change because Kuwait Chess Federation is not funded by the government anymore. So basically, no one is willing to do the job for nothing 🙂 hehehe!!

    Anyways, good luck to you too

    1. Are there GMs or IMs participating in this tournment?
    2. Who was the highest rated player played here and what was his FIDE rating?


  6. kadsawy says:

    Hello Ananda!

    There will be several players with an ELO rating above 2000!
    I believe, there will be only one player who has a FIDE title.
    Ahmad Emad Taha is a FIDE MASTER from Egypt. He will surely play.
