Rashneel Kumar
Thursday, July 10, 2014

CANDIDATE Master Calvin Prasad continued his unbeaten run in the domestic chess competition after securing his fourth consecutive win last week.

The national champion won the Parmeshwar Memorial Rapid Chess Championship in Suva on Saturday.

Prasad amassed 6.5/7 to edge out CM Manoj Kumar by half a point.

CM Goru Arvind finished on third with 4.5/7.

The intermediate division was won by veteran Seru Sisirocivi, who had 4/7, an equivalent score to Ravikesh Prasad but ahead on tie-break.

Krishneel Nair finished third with a lukewarm 3/7.

The secondary schools division was a three-way tie between William Yee, Zen Borg and the sensational Menash Fareed who all had 5/7.

By virtue of tie-break under a Swiss System, William Yee and Zen Borg took the top two positions.

Thirteen-year-old Fareed continued to be a nemesis for defending champion Kumar as he held him to a well-fought draw.

In other results, Vinooda Senewiratne walked home with the primary school's title with 4/7, while women's national champion WCM Gloria Sukhu dominated the female category with the same score.

Dinesh Parmeshwar, the elder brother of late Rajnesh Parmeshwar, provided nine trophies and $1000 cash in prizes for the tournament.
