“This is how its done guys…..” International Master Robert Gwaze was in the country end of last month, he is currently based in Namibia. In the pic he is having a fruitful and refreshing session with Young Chess Masters students; WCM Rumbidzai Mawire and brother Tawananyasha at their home in Avondale Harare. Looking on is a talented player and coach Lawrence Tavagwisa.
IM Gwaze is the best player Zimbabwe has ever produced. He won several accolades including Africa Junior Championship (earning his IM title), Africa Individual Championships, and the greatest of them all a Gold Medal on board one for Zimbabwe at the Bled Olympiad in 2002! He clinched Gold in style a perfect 9/9 ‘the Bobby Fischer way!’. He is the only African player to achieve this Olympiad splendid performance on board one. Long live Gwaze!!
