Knights Chess Academy Legend in pic came a brilliant 4th behind three heavyweights …! The PRESTIGE SECTION Easter Open 2017 event ended on Tuesday the 18th of April… There was a three way tie on 1st place: IM Rodwell Makoto ZIM, IM Chitumbo Mwali ZAM, Siame Kela Kailule ZAM all finishing the event at 7.5/9. They dismissed Castro Sibanda, Emarald Mushore, and Vitalis Mapuranga respectively on the top 3 boards. (Kela being the overall tournament winner having a higher bucholtz followed by IM Mwali).
Knights Academy legend Zhemba Jemusse played brilliantly to finish at 4th place with 6.5 pts in a 44 player tough Section. Others with 6 pts in joint 5th place included: Kudakwashe Sibanda, Castro Sibanda, IM Kelvin Chumfwa ZAM, Elisha Chimbamu..Other following with 5 pts were: Tapiwa Jele, Vitalis Mapuranga, Emarald Mushore, Mufaro Mangono, Mugove Muririma. …Vitalis Mapuranga played the best games of his life dismissing tough competition from IM Chumfwa along the way. His end ranking is not quite reflective of his brave run. Well done..
