IM Robert Gwaze of Zimbabwe sizzling with 9-0 streak!!


IM Robert Gwaze is on a mission. A remarkable young talent from Zimbabwe, he has taken the Bled Olympiad by storm. Those opponents unaware of his very raw attacking style and gift for tactics soon learned as they faced resignation. One-by-one these opponents have fallen… nine in a row!

It is not certain whether records are kept for consecutive Olympiad wins, but one can say with a level of certainty that not many have achieved this feat. Of course
GM Bobby Fischer can make such a claim (11-0 in 1963-64 US Championship), but there are not many (whether professional or amateur).
