GUYANA.- Taffin Khan, Anthony Drayton are winners of Trophy Stall Chess Tournament


GUYANA - Julio 2013

National Senior Chess Champion Taffin Khan played unbeaten, demolishing all seven of his opponents to capture the first place trophy of the “TROPHY STALL” Chess Tournament which ended on Sunday July 7 at the Carifesta Sports Complex, Georgetown. His junior counterpart Anthony Drayton won the junior category but did not emerge unscathed, recording two losses to senior players.

Drayton lost to Khan on Sunday with a pawn down in an endgame struggle involving active knights, pawns and kings. The two were matched to play each other in the penultimate round. Lone female participant Maria Thomas brought second place, Canada-based Guyanese Raymond Singh settled to the third spot while Cleveland Hutson copped fourth among the seniors.


Among the juniors, Roberto Neto secured second place, former junior champion Haifeng Su brought third and Carlos Petterson came in fourth. The Best Beginner was Rajjv Muneshwer, 13 years old, of Queens College. Muneshwer on Sunday defeated 17 year old Davion Mars, one of last year’s National Junior Championship finalists. Omar Britton Grant was again adjudged the Best Under-16 Player, a position he held in recent competitions. Ron Motilall copped the prize for Best Under-19 Player.

The final point scores of the seniors read: Taffin Khan seven, Maria Thomas and Raymond Singh five each, Cleveland Hutson four and a half. Among the juniors, Anthony Drayton scored five points, Roberto Neto four and a half, former National Junior Champion Haifeng Su and Carlos Petterson four apiece. Rajiv Muneshwer and Ron Motilall scored three points each while Omar Britton Grant recorded two and a half points. Nine seniors and 13 junior players participated in the tournament which consisted of seven rounds.
