5th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games
5th Asian Indoor Games
The 2017 edition of the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games is being held between September 17 and 27 in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan. Besides the traditional Martial arts, swimming and weightlifting competitions, there are also chess, bowling and cue games! In total, more than 4,000 participants in 14 sports.
The chess events included regular time controls as well as rapid and blitz divided into men and women sub-divisions. The individual men event saw Vietnam’s LeQuang and China’s Lu Shanglei emerge on top with 5.5 points from 7 games.
Best Game !?
I like this game! Nice tactical finesses abound. Hard to say where Torre went wrong, and that makes the game even more worthy.
