Hello everyone,

Twelve-year-old Menash Fareed upset Candidate Master Goru Arvind in the first round of the National Chess Championship on Thursday. A new champion will be crowned in the JR White-sponsored chess tournament at the Fiji Olympic House on Saturday because defending champion Dr Sanmogan Goundar who is based in Australia was not able to make it for the tournament.

Fiji Chess Federation president Dr Virgilio de Asa said only nine men's are participating in the event.

"The upset of round one was Menash Fareed beating Olympiad rep Goru Arvind," he said.

"In other matches, CM Calvin Prasad beat CM Noel Adricula, New Zealand based Asish Gautam beat John Caldera of Rakiraki and CM Manoj Kumar beat Ronald Terubea."

The women's chess championship will begin today.
