Nigeria chess players and friends of Nigeria chess are getting ready for the Foxwoods Open Chess Tournament which comes up between April 8-12, 2009 at the beautiful Foxwood Resort in Connecticut. Those expected (and not all the names here are confirmed yet) to be at the chess tournament are (from left to right): NM George Umezinwa, Ola Osanyinjobi,Dr Okechukwu Iwu, Toyin Gbenle, Dr Daaim Shabazz of the Chess Drum, Kenneth Odeh, IM Dapo Adu, Kebadu Belachew (Ethiopia), Frank Johnson and Quale Johnson of the Houston Chess Club, Chikwere Onyekwere, Dr Jide Falana and Dr Sylvester Smarty and other Nigeria chess players not listed here. Its certainly going to be an exciting event. Foxwoods Open is always a big event and you can call it another play ground of the Grandmasters(GM) if you will. Its going to be a "battle royal" and all hands will be on deck for the big fight. We wish all the chess players best of luck at this event.
