SEA Games

 While I was in Thailand, there were a number of news stories about the South East Asia Games, which were about to start in Vietnam. It seemed to be a pretty big deal in Thailand, and probably in other countries as well.

One sport that is part of the program (and is a full medal sport) is Chess. Medals are being awarded for standard chess, as well as rapidplay and blitz, for both Men and Women (I'm assuming that there is no Open section). Although both events are small, they are very strong, with every participant holding a title. The homepage for the Games is although following the chess results is a little difficult. A better link for the chess tournaments can be found at 

Chess is also a medal sport at the Asian Games, although this years games have recently been postponed due to Covid, and will now take place next year.
