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.
