The 2023 Kenya National Chess Championship will start on Boxing Day at the historic Charter Hall within the City Hall complex in downtown Nairobi.

The Chess Kenya Federation has once again put up a car as the first prize, sending Kenyan chess players into a psychedelic trance with dreams of driving off with the car!

The nine-round event runs from 26th to 30th December 2023 and will double up as the First Phase to select the 2024 Olympiad Team.

The Second Phase of the Olympiad Selection is set for 26th to 28th January 2024, while the Final Phase will happen from 9th to 11th February 2024.

All I can say is ‘Aluta continua’!
