March Open: Round 3 Pairing

Hello again loyal chess-fans of Kuwait and beyond,

Here is an update to the tournament that is currently being held in the Kuwait Chess Federation. Due to the low number of participants, the number of rounds have been reduced from 9 til 7. And the playing days is now 3 days a week instead of 4 days as initially posted.

Also in the other news, an unbelievable game was played yesternight between Waleed Al Awadhi (white) and Bader Al Hajeri (black). It ended in a rather short period. It took only 32 moves till Al Hajeri resigned! Yes, you read it right. Bader Al Hajeri was defeated yesterday in a quick game. As Bader said in the post-game analysis, I was making too many mistakes from early on. I knew the best move, but I didn’t play it. He also said, he made at least 5 major mistakes.

These mistakes cost Al Hajeri the game. But not the tournament. If the top-seed of the tournament lost, that truly does mean that the trophy is truly anybody’s. Come down and join us for a couple of games. It is sad to have a limited amount of players. But in a way, it gives it a different feel.

Without further adieu, here’s the pairings for round 3:

  1. Ibrahim Shehab vs. Florentino Silao
  2. Fayiq Kanan vs. Taher Al Khateeb
  3. Ahmed Hosni vs. Waleed Al Awadhi
  4. Faizur Rahman vs. Reda Ahmed
  5. Bader Al Hajeri vs. Basir Cosain
  6. Khaled Al Hashem vs. Moh’d Abdulmohsin
  7. Eid Mohamed vs. Dr. Ahmed Al Shikh
  8. Ashraf Majed vs. Ala’a AbduLatif
  9. Abdullah Salah vs. Nizar Kanan
  10. Abdulwahab Al Atiqi vs. Zakariya Afifi
  11. Nasser Maqseed vs. Magdi Tawfiq
  12. Khaled Al Jiwasri vs. Sajan Vargughese
  13. Ra’ed Al Ahmadya vs. Yousif Ahmed
  14. Nour Al Dein vs. Dr. Asim Ahmed
  15. Omran Al Moussawi vs. Amer Al Amer
