Fiji Chess News: Manoj Kumar Wins Parmeshwar Memorial

Alexandra Kosteniuk's Chess Blog for Daily Chess News and Trivia (c) 2013

Hi everyone, 

Here is some latest chess from Fiji. Candidate Master (CM) Manoj Kumar successfully retained the Rajnesh Parmeshwar Memorial Chess Championship. Kumar and CM Calvin Prasad went into the final round that was played at the Fiji Club with 4.5 points from the six rounds played last week at Tappoo City.

The last round had to be postponed after competition was played late into the night on July 6. Fiji Chess Federation president Dr Virgilio de Asa said Kumar beat Keez Terubea in the final round to finish with 5.5 points.

"Prasad lost to new CM, Ronald Terubea in the last round to finish third as Ronald's win allowed him to finish second with five points," he said. "Prasad and Noel Adricula were tied for third place with 4.5 points but Prasad won the tie-break."

Dr de Asa praised national junior champion, Ronald for his performance in the competition.

"He just recently became a CM but he has been performing consistently this whole season."
