The Crazyhouse Chess Grand Prix organised by Chess Nigeria Online kicked off last night with a total of 29 players. The Grand Prix which consist of 12 90-minute tourneys spread of over a 4-week period, saw some strong Nigerian crazy house chess players such as FM Dabee, ZGM Adet (ZGM being an in-house tile – Zombie Grandmaster), ManfromSpain, Adewale, Bayormiller take to the battlefield.
A lot of players have been making predictions about who the top 5 or top 10 will be, but if the outcome of last night’s tourney was anything to go by, many are going to lose their bets, as the lower rated players showed that they were not just there to make up the numbers. I played so badly yesterday that I saw myself losing the first three games, and once that happens; it becomes an uphill task trying to catch up with the leaders.
As expected FM Dabee who is nicknamed “the Shaolin master” was in devastating form, sweeping through the field like a terminator. He ended the tourney with 50 point losing only to Zlater007 and CM MorpheusPro . Zlater007, Ovokodigood & BB_thegame were some of the surprises of the night, fighting their way into the top 10 ahead of ZGM Adet (myself) who ended the night on 16 points at 11th position. NM Godbless was not a happy bunny as he missed out of the tourney. He fell asleep just before it began.
