Sham Khan came from behind to capture the Oasis Café monthly chess tournament title, which was held last Saturday at the Oasis Too on South Road.
After trailing Stanley Ming and Sheriffa Ali for most of the day, Khan drew with Ming in round six and defeated Ali in the final round.
Ming headed into the final round as the leader, but quickly found himself in trouble after he blundered his queen away against Rashad Hussain. Hussain went on to secure the win.
The final points standing: Sham Khan five and a half, Stanley Ming and Sheriffa Ali on five, Khalid Gajraj and Rashad Hussain on four and a half, Devendra Singh and Raphael Singh on four, Adrian Allicock on three and a half, Antonio Seenanan, Imran Shaw, Khalif Gobin, Irshad Ishmael and Carlos Griffith on three and Gabriela Fernandes on one.
In the beginner’s category, Keron Simon played unbeaten to capture the top spot. His toughest challenge came against Aslam Hussain, with materials evenly matched heading into the end game, both players agreed to a draw.
The final points standing, Keron Simon six and a half, Aslam Hussain six, Jamal Hoppie four and a half, Nicholi Cox, Mikael Phang, Adam Ramnarayan and Michael Phang on four, Akeem Greene, Mariah Hamilton, Brandt Fernandes, Ronuel Chang Yuen and Leah Farinha on three, Tashana Lowe and Crystal Dey two and a half, Daniel Simboo and Joshua Brazao two and one respectively.
