Mr. Dr Saif Alnuaimi
Everything went as usual on the top boards. First 10 highest rating holders won against their opponents on round 2 without any problems. But Iranian 10 years old Ebrahimi Sina who has 1703 rating at the age of 10 drew with black against Emerati player Sultan Fadel Saeed M Alshamsi who belongs to Al Ain Chess & Culture Club. Ebrahimi Sina maybe got a bit upset by his draw with player who has lower than his rating about -400 rating point difference.

The current rating of Sultan Fadel Saeed M Alshamsi is 1293 so far. He is 14-year-old boy and his sister Amal Fadel Saeed M Alshamsi is also playing in this wonderful tournament. Amal Fadel Saeed M Alshamsi is one of the most promising talented young players in the United Arab Emirates and she also belongs to Al Ain Chess & Culture Club. Yesterday, she played against the top seed Ukrainian FIDE Master Viktor Matviyishen with white on board 1. Of course, it must be very good experience for her to fight against such a good player.
