It was a fun day today at the Goan Gymkhana. Nairobi Chess Club lost 4 nil in round 1 and in round 2 got 1.5 points thanks to a win from Peter Gilruth who played Bob Bibasa and a draw from Mehul Gohil who play Arthur Ssegwanyi. I will post the games for readers to follow.
There was a small but enthusiastic crowd of supporters who came for the event. The event was even graced by some BigWigs of Chess Kenya – The Chairman – Andolo Ambasi, Vice Chairman Francis Ngesa and committee member Mary Kanyua were all there to see part of the action.
Elections for Chess Kenya are due this year so I guess it is important for BigWigs to come out and do some PR stuff.
