Last weekend, for the second consecutive year, the PMU Chess Club participated in the Saudi Arabian Chess Championship in the Holy City of Makkah. The team comprised 4 student-players together with one staff member.
As always, PMU students earned respect from international players for their tenacity and playing skills. They were great ambassadors for PMU, placed well in the tournament and earned internationally recognized points for their personal ratings. This year saw an important improvement in terms of total points earned, and chess playing skills, which was noted by senior players, while inexperienced players became more familiar with this kind of competition.
After the championship, the PMU team used their free time to perform Omrah and prayer.
To sum up, the championship was highly motivational for PMU students to keep working on their games.
