It was a great and exciting night for the EIGHTY PLAYERS who registered for the tournament. There was a lot of new faces. All familiar with the game of chess and ready to slaughter thier opponents.
The biggest surprise was on Table #2, where Bader Al Hajeri (the Kuwait Chess-Champ) was defeated by a young lad at the age of 12! Asfand Yar Khan is the son of another great chess player, Khaled Khan Anwer. The game was extremely difficult and the tactics were wild! So many people gathered around that board just to watch what was going to happen.
Thier game will be posted shortly, along with pictures and a more indepth coverage. I got home late last night and didn’t have the time to update the website.
Stay tuned for coverage for the 1st and 2nd round of the Fischer Open CHESS tournament. Have a good day chess fans. And for the chess players, good luck to you all!
