Tuesday, 23 September 2014 12:25
The first ever rated tournament organised by Chessam from 13th September to 21st September 2014, was a big success in Lilongwe at the Baptist Theological college Hall. Upsets were recorded but the good news is that we shall add 3 players to the list of rated players. Playing in a round robbin, the final ranking looked like this:
1. Chiletso Chipanga 8 pts
2.Alfred Chimthere 8 pts
3.FM Gerald Mphungu 7 pts
4.Stanford Chiwambo 4 pts
5.Petros Mfune 4 pts
6.Misheck Nyirenda 3.5 pts
7.Newton Jere 3pts
8.Overton Kanyinji 3 pts
9.Hope Mwazozo 2.5 pts
10.Moses Mkadawire 1pt
From the tournament, it is only Stanford Chiwambo, Newton Jere and Overton Kanyinji that managed to beat the rated players and will therefore benefit by getting rated. From the beginning, Hope Mwazozo looked like the best candidate to beat a rated player but it never turned to be.
