KCF President Githinji Hinga introduces GM Nigel Short. Photo by Kim Bhari.
Whilst the drama of the Tsogo Sun Millionaire Satellite event was unfolding over the weekend, GM Nigel Short was concluding his African tour with a 3- day visit to Kenya! Nigel was the guest of honour at the 2015 NAIROBI GYMKHANA BLITZ CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP Championships where he conducted a 30-board simultaneous exhibition scoring a perfect 30/30 score in the process. KCF wishes to congratulate CM Ben Magana who won the rapid event and Joseph Metu who won the blitz. Results of both tournaments can be accessed below:
The British Grandmaster with Kim Bhari.
Nigel then conducted a training session for the top players and upcoming juniors and did numerous television interviews including this excellent 30-minute session on the morning sports show of K24 Alfajiri TV.
KCF Africa would like to extend our thanks to Nigel for his efforts to develop the game across the continent. He has traversed the continent visiting Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Kenya and has been on the road road for almost three weeks in total.
We hope he can now get some hard earned rest back home in Greece at the end of a highly successful tour!

The women's list saw less significant changes. GM Hou Yifan (2686) didn't play this month (but she's playing the Nakhchivan Open, which starts today!), and is still 11 points ahead of GM Judit Polgar (2675). The Hungarian chess legend has retired, and will be considered inactve by FIDE a year after her last rated game.
GM Ju Wenjun lost 12 points at the Women's World Championship, the Women's World Team Championship and the Chinese league, and dropped from #5 to #6. GM Bela Khotenashvili won 14 points at the the same three events.
World Champion IM Mariya Muzychuk ironically lost two rating points in Sochi, but won four in Chengdu. GM Harika Dronavalli, WGM Olga Girya and WGM Natalija Pogonina won 16, 15 and 18 points respectively.
GM Elina Danielian had a bad month: she lost no fewer than 30 points at the Women's World Championship, the Women's World Team Championship and the Aeroflot Open.

World Cup: Nakamura Wins Armageddon, Nepomniachtchi Appeal Rejected
Kovalenko Wins Najdorf Memorial With 2902 Performance
on 7/20/15, 3:11 AM.
GM Igor Kovalenko won the Najdorf Memorial in Warsaw, Poland most convincingly. The 26-year-old Ukrainian-born Latvian GM scored 8.0/9, good for a 2902 performance rating and the € 5,000 ($5,500) first prize.
Photo courtesy of the Najdorf Memorial.
He's not that well known yet, and probably scored his career's best result last week in Poland: Igor Kovalenko. Born in Novomoskovsk, Ukraine in 1988, he switched federations to Latvia in 2013 and immediately won the Latvian championship that year and the next.
In the past few days, Kovalenko was in top shape. We know that he started with four out of four, just like GM Andrey Zhigalko of Belarus. Obviously the two played each other in round five, and despite playing Black, Kovalenko managed to keep his perfect score:
