Karachi: Sindh Chess Association SCA is organizing Sindh Chess Championship today Sunday at Russian Culture Center, Tariq Road.
The championship will be contested in two categories – youth and open categories.
Players above 16 and below 22 years of age will be eligible to participate in the youth category.
General secretary Sadia Qureshi SCA said that cash prizes will be distributed among the top eight players of each category.
“We wanted to hold the tournament spread over around three to four days but after the feedback we got from players, we were forced to fold up the tournament to only to a single day. The law and order situation in the city was the main reason that the players were reluctant to play in an extensive tournament,” she said.
