CALVIN Prasad continued his unbeaten run in the domestic competition after scooping the Mohammed Badshah Memorial Open Chess Championship on Sunday.
The national champion won all his seven games at the Tappoo City Conference Room to clinch the title.
Candidate Master Prasad overcame a strong challenge from CM Goru Arvind (5.5/7) and CM Manoj Kumar (5/7) to finish on top.
Arvind and Kumar finished second and third, respectively.
New female Olympiad representative Aarti Sewak managed the fourth spot on 4/7.
"My winning streak is now extended to three tournaments," Prasad said in a statement from the Fiji Chess Federation.
Federation president Doctor Virgilio De Asa said the upset of the tournament was caused by youngster Menash Fareed.
The 13-year-old defeated former champion CM Kumar.
The other major upset was primary school student Claudia Koroi beating secondary schools champion Stanley Zhang in a nail-biting exchange.
Australia-based International Arbiter Dr Jashint Maharaj won the intermediate division with 5/7 ahead of CM Noel Adricula who scored 4/7.
CM Ronald Terubea led the tertiary division with 5.5/7 while Prashil Prakash and Krishneel Nair shared the second spot on 3/7.
Jacqueline Masilomani and Gor Nahapetyan continued their dominance in the primary schools division and were tied on 4/7 while Fareed claimed the secondary schools division with 5/7 ahead of Zen Borg and James Zhang, who were tied on 4.5/7.
The day-long tournament was sponsored by Australia-based CM Sanmogam Gounder in memory of Fijian chess player Mohammed Badshah who lost his life in a tragic car accident more than a decade ago.
