SCO 2022 ended successfully

The Chinese Draughts Association successfully organized the online tournament among national teams from four member countries of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The gap between the teams’ final results was very close, and the games had intense challenges.

Kazakhstan dominated the tournament with one win and two draws. As a test tournament by initiative from the Chinese Association, it was a fantastic event between members of the Asian Confederation.

The main referee, Ms. Xie Fang, managed the tournament very well with the help of officials from Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, and China federations. Asian Confederation is thankful for all who supported the event!

First Asian player is at the world’s top

After a long “marathon” at the 60th World Championship in Ivory Coast, 15-year old GMI Pan Yiming (China) finished his competition with the silver medal of the world’s highest contest with 20 best players from all continents.

GMI Alexander Georgiev (Russia) once approved he is the leader of world draughts sports. He won the Championship title with 28 points of 40 possible with enough high percentage of winning. GMI Guntis Valneris (Latvia) had collected 27 points the same as with Pan Yiming, but he is behind by the additional criteria.

Pan Yiming became the first player from Asia who could be at the medal pedestal of the world championships in the history. Another Asian player, MI Otgonbileg Tserenbyamba (Mongolia), finished his tournament at the 17th place. The two players got the right to play in Africa by the result of the Asian Championship 2018 in Xintai, China.

World Championship 2019 started

2019 World championship started in Ivory Coast. 2 players from China and Mongolia are representing Asia there.
In 1st round of the 20 players round robin tournament GMI Pan Yiming (China) could win Pan-American grandmaster Guno Burleson while Mongolian MI Tserenbyamba Otgonbileg was unlucky against GMI Ivan Trofimov (Russia).
It is just a start as 18 more rounds to go.
