Hello everyone,

The Fiji National Chess Championship 2013 is set to begin on Saturday with top seed being Manoj Kumar who is the favourite to win in the men's category following the non-participation of defending champion Candidate Master Sanmogam Goundar.

"Many people think that chess is just another board game but it is a lot more than that," former national champion Kumar said.

"To sit and concentrate on a single match for four to five hours under FIDE regulations takes years of practice. In many high level games, it only takes a single miscalculation to turn the tables completely," he said.

The final tournament of the year will have players including CM Calvin Prasad, Ronald Terubea, Noel Adricula and Goru Arvind while Women's Candidate Master (WCM) Gloria Sukhu and Women's FIDE Master (WFM) Hilda Vukikomoala in the women's category.
