Cambodian Traditional Chess Tournament (Ouk Chatrang) will be held at the Myanmar Chess Federation headquarters in Aung San Stadium, Yangon from 24 to 28 December.
The Cambodian traditional chess game will be included in the upcoming 32nd Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games), so through this chess tournament, the preliminary teams for the 2023 Cambodian SEA Games will be selected. The chess tournament will be held as the men’s and women’s tournaments.
It is said that anyone will be able to participate in the competition after paying an entry fee.
“Cambodian traditional chess is familiar to everyone. It’s similar to Thai traditional chess. And it’s a little similar to Myanmar chess. But the moves are different. The playing style is a little different,” said Myanmar Chess Federation Joint Secretary U Myo Zaw Min.
It is reported that those who wish to participate in the competition should contact 09 795889880 and send the list by 17 December. — Bala Soe/KZL
