17-year-old wins Arab Chess Championship

I was reporting earlier about Arab Chess Championship. At the end, seventeen-year-old IM Amin Bassem from Egypt won the championship title and the GM norm. It has to be mentioned that IM Al Sayed, who has been leading from the start, lost his last round game and slipped to 2nd place tie.

Final standings:
1. IM Bassem Amin (EGY 2400) with 6,5 points out of 9 rounds
2-6. IM Mohamad Al Sayed (QAT 2478), IM Fouad El Taher (EGY 2456), GM Slim Belkhodja (TUN 2468), GM Ahmed Adly (EGY 2503) and GM Moussa Taleb (UAE 2508) 6 points each etc.
