GACC 2016

The 19th edition is still fresh in GiLoCatur's memory, the 20th edition is coming around. What GiLoCatur is talking about? It is GACC or Grand Asian Chess Challenge. The first edition was held twenty years ago in 1996 the year in which Fikri, GiLoCatur's eldest child, was born. He took part in his first GACC last year while he was 18 years and 2 months old.

How Fikri fared in the 19th GACC? He won three, drew five and lost one game. He scored 5.5/9 points ranked 22nd out of total 112 participants. The Top 10 Final Ranking was dominated by players from foreign universities.

GiLoCatur hopes that more local players will be among the Top 10. So, practice and be prepared from now!
