The FIDE RATED Harare Chess Association (HCA) AfriSteel Open 2018 event warmed up a lot of chess enthusiasts in the cold winter season of Zimbabwe…
Dates held were: Sat 30 June 2018 and Sun 1 August 2018
Venue was the immaculate Cresta Jameson Hotel Harare Zimbabwe (along Samora Machel road next to ZESA Headquaters in the Harare CBD)
IA Simbarashe Murimi was the chief arbiter and main organizer under the Harare Chess Association, and it was a job well done adding more FIDE rated events to the Zim chess calender! Thanks also goes to AfriSteel for the valuable sponsorship..the chess community greatly appreciates such a noble effort!
