Well done Alois!. Your effort was just too good…. Alois used to frequent our monthly very humble mini tournaments at Cabal Christian College in Highfield Harare since their inception 3 years back. A hard worker on and off the board. He took part in the recently held Zim Open 2018 chess tournament and scored a good 5.5/8!
