Chess Exhibition

It is our pleasure to host these two chess giants at Awesome Chess Academy tomorrow, 12th February 2022. These are phenomenal as far as the 64 Squared game is concerned in Nigeria, Africa and the World!
IM Aikhoje Odion popularly known as Odirov is a Grand Master slayer! The feat he achieved at the 33rd Chess Olympiad in Elista, Russia in 1998 and won an individual Gold Medal. He also won individual Gold Medal in 2003 at the 8th African Games.
In 2008 Chess Olympiad, he was awarded a special prize in honour of the gold medal he once won.
IM Balogun Oluwafemi popularly known as pegystuffings the current National Chess Champion. He is also the highest classical rated Nigerian player as at today with a rating of 2308. IM Balogun in 2016 qualified to play in the FIDE World Cup and played against the World Champion Magnus Carlsen, this made him become the very first African to play against a reigning wold champion in a competitive chess game.

There are many questions on our minds!
Will IM Balogun Oluwafemi survive the London system opening of IM Aikhoje Odion?
Will IM Aikhoje Odion survive the King Indian Attack Of IM Balogun Oluwafemi?
Will Alekhine Defense of IM Aikhoje Odion works like magic against IM Balogun Oluwafemi?
