Korea Prime Ministers Cup - Round 1
The first round of qualifying in the Americas/Oceania group was played at noon (NZST) on 5 August. Chahine (5D) had a solid game against Edisson Albuja (2D) from Equador who put up a very good show against Chahine with some exciting large scale swaps during the game. Chahine has added some comments.
He says "I felt significantly ahead after black spent a lot of moves in the bottom left while I got to attack the centre. B didn’t get enough out of the kos to catch up although he could have made it much closer by living in the top right"
Chahine will play Alfonso Caro (3D) from Uraguay in Round 2. That game will be on 9th August at noon (NZST). You can catch the game in the Championship room on Tygem.
