2007 African Championship

In my previous post, Continental Championships and Zonals (2007-Q2), I wondered if the 9th African Games, which starts today in Algiers, is the 2007 African Continental Championship, a World Championship Qualifier.

It turns out that it's not. After a little searching, I found a document with details on the 2007 African Individual Chess Championships. It will be held 31 August to 11 September 2007, at Windhoek, Namibia. • 'The 2007 African Individual Championships is a qualification event for the World Chess Cup 2007, Khanty Mansiysk, Russia. The top six players at the end of the tournament will be the African Qualifiers.'
