Sharg Chess Tournament! Registration Closed

The Soug Sharg Chess Tournament is coming up shortly. In fact, it will start on 30/11/2010.


I repeat, the tournament will start on November 30, 2010! So that is today.


I don’t have all the details, but it is 9 rounds, and the top ten players get prizes like every year.


For more information and registration, call the Secretary of the Kuwait Chess Federation, Mr Sami Ayoub at 66661949.


Cheers and Good Luck ๐Ÿ™‚

Correction: I put November 21st (and even 27th) before, the tournament actually starts on the 30th. Good luck!

    Nice to know that Souk Shark Tourney is starting soon! However, we are still waiting for the final results and standing for the last Fischer tournament.

  6. Khaled says:

    Thanks for bringing that up Anonymouse.
    I still don’t have them and it looks like I wont get them ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    I literally begged the person who had the results and chased after him for3 weeks by calls and msgs, but in the end, that person stopped receiving my calls.
    So if anybody could get me the results, i would be more then happy to post them.
    Ahmad hosni has donated over a hundred pictures for website use. The only thing missing is the results.
    I hope that makes sense and u understand i went thru alot for you guys.
    Anyways, Cheers and see you soon!

    asfand,
    YOU GO TO SCHOOL NOT CHESS INSIDE UR MIND…OK

  9. Khaled says:

    Asfand, I think he means, stay away from chess and stick to your studies ๐Ÿ™‚ loool
    I say, have a balance between studies and fun. If you can join, then you are most welcome. But if you have exams, study study study ๐Ÿ™‚
    Cheers Mates!

      chess riddle

      Last vacation, my cousin came over to stay at my home. We made the most of her stay at my place… and I even earned a few chocolates.

      Everyday, we would play a game of chess. Whoever lost the game owed a chocolate to the other. After the last game we played (that was the day she was to leave), we counted the number of games each of us had won and lost. Wow! I had won more than her. So, she handed me 21 chocolates… though she herself was the winner in 8 games.

      How many days did my cousin spend at my place? …….

        Answer: 37 Days (if there was no draws between them.)

      • OldgrumpyBishop says:

    by the way, how much the prize of this tournament?

  14. Ahmed Hosny says:

    Hi

    Prizes in the previous Souq Sharq Tour. was:
    (300) 1st – (250) 2nd – (200) 3rd + Cup for each.
    (150) 4th – (???) 5th , and 50 KD up to 10th places.
    Also KD prizes for the 1st Junior and same for the 1st Lady.

    I think it will be the same this year.

    By the way, time will be 1hour for each player + 30 seconds with every clock press.
    I think they name it Fischer’s digital clock that gave each player a fixed period of time.

    Train will.. very will !!

    Good news Asfand, I wish you will be there and your father Mr. Khaled.
    As you are a good player, you’ll beat the disaster .. all the best.

    Maybe you’ll win or draw with:
    1.Bader Al Hajeri
    2.Dennis Poliquit
    3.Ferdinand Bugay
    4.Ahmed Jad Al Rab
    5.Florentino Silao
    6.Taher Al Khateeb
    7.Hamada Al Wakiel
    8.Ibrahim Shehab
    9.Mohamed Jabr
    10.Ferdinand Laming

    If so ( 1/2 or 1 pts.) that will give me a good chanc to be among the first 3 winners.

  25. Asfand yar khan says:
