Kuwait Chess Tournament 2013: R5 Results & R6 Pairing

A few amazing games took place last night at the Kuwait Chess Federation.

Nasser Al Maqseed, who was the only player with a perfect score  of 4.0/4 was soundly defeated by Taher Al Khateeb in a complicated yet interesting Sicilean defense.

Nasser defended soundly but Taher destroyed his defences and won after a complicated endgame.

Another surprising thing that happened was Adel Al Amiri DREW against the Kuwait Champ Bader Al Hajeri.

Not only did he draw, but he had a winning advantage as well!

After a very long 4 hours and sacrificing the Rook for two pawns, Adel thought the game was a draw.

See the final position below where Adel accepted the draw.
