CANDIDATE Master (CM) Calvin Prasad won the Kundan Singh Open title over the weekend at the Level 4 Tappoo City Conference Room in Suva.

Prasad ousted former champion CM Manoj Kumar to remain unbeaten on six points. Kumar and CM Noel Adricula finished on second and third, respectively, on five points each.

CM Ronald Terubea and Anthony Maelasi of Solomon Islands managed the fourth and fifth places, respectively on 4.5 points each.

Fiji Chess Federation president Doctor Virgilio De Asa said the tournament had a record turnout of 45 participants of varying ages.

"Many children enjoyed playing in the new 20 minutes plus 10 seconds rapid format, and this is a great follow-on to winning the Prime Minister's Award at the 2013 FASANOC Sports Awards last Friday."

In the under-14 category, Jacqueline Masilomani won on four points followed by Vinooda Senewiratne on three and Meshan Fareed on 2.5.

Austin Koroi won the U16 grade on four points followed by Kabrina (Cydel) Terubea on 3.5 and Claudya Koroi on three.

Young Male Athlete of the Year Menash Fareed caused an upset and won the U20 title on 4.5 points ahead of Hilda Vukikomoala, who finished with four points.
