Teacher Riste wins Assumption Open

riste deniel assumptionFM Riste Menkinoski won the Assumption Association Chess Championship in a very dramatic turn of events in the last round.

Both FM Riste and FM Deniel had a score of 5.5/6 before the start of the last round, where they were held by young Thailand players. A draw in the last round and 6/7 was enough for 1st place for Riste - he was tied with Kananub Warot but with a better tie-break. 

We are happy with the good performance of our teachers, but even more with Thailand's U8 Champion Chawit Mekarapiruk, who played some very good games with older and much better rated opponents. We wish him to continue in the same way on the upcoming Thailand Junior Championship where he will try to repeat last year success, this time in the U9 category.

Congratulations to the players and also to the organizer Mr. Panupand Vijjuprabha for the excellent organization.
