FIDE player card for Adham Fawzy

(born 2000) Egypt

[what is this?]

International Master (2014); Egyptian U12 Champion (2011); African U12 Champion (2011 & 2012); Arab U12 Champion (2012); African U14 Champion (2013 & 2014), Arab U16 Champion (2015); Egyptian U18 Champion (2015).


Adam Fawzy is one of Egypt and Africa's bright young prospects, ranking #4 in Africa at the age of 15. He played his first FIDE rated tournament at the Malhalla Open in Egypt in 2010 and was awarded his FM title with effect from 2011 when he won the African U12 Championship 2011 that was staged in Lusaka in Zambia with a score of 8/9, 1.5 points clear of the field. He has concentrated much of his play in youth (age division) championships and has found considerable success in this venture.


<Youth> Fawzy contested the Egyptian U16 Championship in April 2011 at the age of 10 or 11 (his birth date is not yet available) in Cairo, placing a respectable =6th. Two months later in June 2011, he contested his own age division to run away with the Egyptian U12 Championship of 2011 with 8.5/9, two points clear of the field. He won the African U12 Championship with 8/9 and successfully defended his title with a perfect score of 9/9 in 2012. The much tougher field at the World U12 Championship 2012 that was staged in Slovenia late in the year yielded him 6/11, three points from the winner Samuel Sevian. Fawzy followed this up by competing at the round robin Arab U12 Championship (which field 8 players, each from a different Arab country) in Yemen and winning on tiebreak with 5.5/7. In 2015, he won the Egyptian U18 Championship with 8.5/9, half a point ahead of reigning African U18 Champion IM Andro Wagdy.

In January 2013, he was =1st with 7.5/9 at the Egyptian U14 Championship that was staged in Cairo, but was runner up in the same event in 2014. In October 2013, he won the African U14 Championship with 8/9, two points clear of the field and successfully defended his title a year later when he won with a perfect score of 9/9. He chanced his arm at the World U14 Championships 2013 at Al Ain in the UAE, but had patchy results to return a rating-neutral 7/11, 2.5 points from the lead. His return to the same event in 2014 was not as successful with 5.5/11. In 2015, he won the Arab U16 championship with another perfect score of 9/9

<Junior (U20)> Fawzy contested the Egyption Junior Championship in February 2014, and was leading after 7 rounds only to lose his last two games to place 3rd. He was second to Wagdy in the Egyptian Junior Championship held in March 2015.

<National> He contested the senior national championship in 2014, and scored 4.5/9. He gained nearly 50 rating points in this event as he had to face the strongest aggregate of opponents of any player, breaking even against his five IM opponents, including wins against Kareim Wageih and Abdelrahman Hesham and drawing against Hatim Ibrahim.


Fawzy competed in senior competitions from an early age. He contested the Alexandria Open in September 2011, finishing in the top half of the field with a strong 5/9. One of his best early results was a strong 5.5/9 at the 14th Mahalla Open in 2012 in Cairo, his result in this event adding 112 points to his rating. Two of his wins gained maximum rating points by being against players rated 400 or more points higher than himself. In early 2013, he competed in a relatively strong Pharos Club event, scoring 6/9. He produced some more relatively strong results later in 2013 at the Nasser Academy, the 1st Damanhour Chess Open and the Bahabek Ya Balady Chess Open.

He was =1st with 7.5/9 alongside Saiid A Naby at the Alexandria Rated 2014 in March 2014 gaining nearly 50 rating points for this effort. He was =1st at the 2nd Pharos Chess in June 2014. He was =4th with 7/9, half a point from the joint lead, at the Zaqaziq Open held in August 2014. A strong 6.5/9 at the Alexandria Refresher 2014 Standard held in Assiut in Egypt added 77 points to his ratings, more than offsetting a disappointing result at the World U14 Championship 2014. He put in another strong result at the 19th Alexandria Open 2014 when he placed =3rd behind Ahmed Adly and Mohsen Elgabry, adding another 63 rating points to his card. In March 2015, he won the Pharos Chess Closed with a perfect score of 8/8 including two forfeits. In June 2015, he was =1st with 7/9 at the annual Alexandria Rated Players event. Later that month, he was 2nd behind Aly Yasseen at the Alexandria Masters tournament with 7.5/9.

Team events

Fawzy played in the Egyptian League in the 2009-10 season, his first games being in early January 2010. He also played in the same league in 2011-12 and in every season since then. In the 2014/15 season he scored 10/11 and an IM norm, picking up a stunning 161 rating points for this event. He was also a participant in the first Egyptian Youth League, that event being launched in 2013-14.

Fawzy's highest rating to date is 2489 in August 2015. His highest national rating to date is #3, and his continental rating #4, also in August 2015.
