Dear chess community,

The Asian Amateur Chess Championships will be held in Kuwait City, Kuwait from the 16th to the 25th of November. It would be good for anyone who could go there. Once I have regulations on the event, I endeavour to update this thread with the information that comes to hand.

Pity that there is a rating limitation..Otherwise would be a great forum for true amateurs of the world to get together. Check out the first two events from 1924 & 1928 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Amateur_Chess_Championship - they were a lot of fun cause even masters who were not chess pros were participating. Defining ''amateurism' by rating only is not very accurate i guess :) Amateurs can be strong too :)
