Kontaktmarkt Dresden

Placing first within the Deaf Players was Artur Kevorkov (Germany) and Raphael Zimmer (Germany) won the Physically Disabled Category.During the price giving ceremony Phillip Gardner (ICCD President) thanked the players for very fair games and also congratulated the organising team on putting together another great championship.

Herself and her assistant spent quite some time walking amongst the players looking at their games.

What an honour to have such high ranking officials amongst the supports of Chess for the Disabled here in Saxony!

Unlike most rounds so far we had a total of 10 draws which of course is keeping the tournament interesting until the end. Tserenjav Tumenbayar of Mongolia, the current Asian Deaf Champion had a few issues getting here to Dresden but is now very much enjoying himself at the tournament.

Despite being not rated he had a good round achieving a draw against Svetlana Gerasimova (ELO 1879) of Russia.

It has been an exciting tournament so far and it remains just this until the last day as the main decisions are still outstanding.

Our guest of honour welcoming everyone and making the first move was Ms Barbara Klepsch.

The 5th round resulted in quite a few draws again and every full point was fought for.

It is great to see that the final result is still from clear ahead of the rest day.

In the overall ranking there are currently only 4 players without any points.

Therefore, some sort of decision can only be expected after a few more rounds.
