I have some happy memories of playing in Tunisia a few years ago and I assume the competitors in the Arab Championships received as warm a welcome as I did back then.
The tournament was weakened by the absence of some of the stronger players such as former Junior World Champion Ahmed Adly (2591) but it was another Egyptian who came out clearly on top a full point ahead.
