2022 Chennai Olympiad – Round 3

Kenya lost narrowly to 2.5-1.5 to South Korea in the Open section.

Martin Njoroge managed to win the game with some patient manoeuvring of his pieces. On the other hand, Githinji Hinga played well to build a superior position but seemed to have lost his nerve at the end. Nevertheless, he managed to extract a draw against IM Hongin Ahn.

In the Ladies section, Kenya lost 3-1 to Venezuela, with WCM Joyce Ndirangu winning her game.
