Pak trying to excel at World Youth Chess

LAHORE - Pakistan has been trying to find its place in the middle of the points table by defeating the players from Afghanistan and UAE in the World Youth Chess Championships 2013 in Al-Ain, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Zorez Shabkhez is only Pakistani playing in U-16 age group which was sent there due to hectic efforts of Chess Federation of Pakistan (CFP). Lamenting the behavior of Pakistan Sports Board (PSB), CFP secretary Dr Naeem Hamid Mirza said despite several requests and reminders to the PSB, the CFP could not get any help from the PSB to field the proper Pakistan team in the event. So relying on its own sources, the CFP could only make possible the minimum representation of a Pakistani player to make the presence of the country among 108 countries of the world.–Staff Reporter
