Hello everyone! Another final report for the end of another tournament in Kuwait!

Almost 3 months ago, way before the holy month of Ramadan, a tournament started and sponsored by the Filipino Chess Association in Kuwait (FCA-K). Once a week, on every Friday evening, the players play a single round of rapid chess. The time controls were 45 minutes to each side. The entrance fee was only 3 KD and the prizes I think were trophies. Once I find out exactly, I will update this post.

Anyways, here are the Final Standings for the tournament participants:

  1. Ryan Carandang 7.5 PTS. (Lost only 1 game!) *** WINNER ***
  2. Ric Panuelos 7 PTS.
  3. Emmanuel Ygpuara 7 PTS. (He was the only won to beat Ryan!)
  4. Nasser Maqseed 6 PTS.
  5. Oliver John Revidad 5.5 PTS.
  6. Khaled Hashem 5.5 PTS.
  7. Sammy Cayabyab 5 PTS.
  8. Zapanta Manalo 5 PTS.
  9. Liquat Ali 5 PTS.
  10. Bader Al Hajeri 4.5 PTS.
  11. Bart Macapaz 4.5 PTS.
  12. Ferdinand Bugay 4.5 PTS.
  13. Nathaniel Tinsay 4.5 PTS.
  14. Dante Sarsalejo 4 PTS.
  15. Nasir Bahamany 3.5 PTS.
  16. Boyet Zacarias 3.5 PTS.
  17. Greg Greg 3.5 PTS.
  18. Bogs Silao 3 PTS.
  19. Manny Cornelio 3 PTS.
  20. Abdullah Munir 3 PTS.
  21. Gary Garanganao 2 PTS.
  22. Hashem Hussain 2 PTS.
