Waseem Khatri Does It Again!


The Signature 28th National Scrabble Championship came to a most dramatic finish when Pakistanís No. 1 Waseem Khatri staged a remarkable comeback to clinch the title for the eighth time in his young career.

The result was an utter heartbreak for the former world youth champion Moiz Baig, who led the pack from the beginning till the very end. Waseem and Moiz fought a spectacular battle for the title in the last five matches against each other in the king-of-the-hill format.

It all came down to the very last match of the tournament with Waseem and Moiz playing on table 1; both on 18 wins. The game more than lived up to the expectations with Moiz taking an early lead with the help of three consecutive bingos and Waseem catching up every time.

The game was so close that the winner did not emerge until the very last tile was played. Waseem ultimately won 472-448 and finished with 19 wins and a spread of 839 against Moizís 18 wins and a spread of 1,464.

M. Inayat staged a late rally on the final day to clinch the 3rd position.

The 18-year-old Hassan Hadi finished fourth while his identical twin Hammad was eighth.

Wonder boy, 16-year-old Abdullah Abbasi finished fifth while Wajid Iqbal, Tariq Pervez, Anwar Siddiqi and Jawed Shamim finished sixth, seventh, ninth and 10th, respectively.

This championship is being billed as the best ever in Pakistanís history with the highest standard of the game observed than any previous championships. The emergence of the youth players was evident from the fact that four of the top eight and 10 out of the top 20 players were under 19 years of age. One of them Hasham Hadi, who finished 14th is still only 11.

The winners were presented glittering trophies

by the chief guest while Ahad Riaz won the cash prize for the highest rating gain by any player in the championship.

THE YOUNG WIZARD
By Maria Soares

Waseem Khatri is the reigning Scrabble Champion of Pakistan. He has the honor of being the youngest Scrabble Champion in Pakistan’s history. He won the coveted trophy in 2008 when he was only 18 and retained the title in 2009 and 2010, completing his hat-trick as winner.He is the second person in the history of PSA to do so. Waseem first showed his massive potential at very young age, having participated in the PSA inter-schools tournaments that are held every year. He further cemented his position as one of the best up-coming players by winning the junior categories. He progressed from Student to Master category within a matter of one year! His rise was phenomenal; at the time his colleagues were competing in the school categories Waseem was holding the title of National Champion while being a schoolboy.Waseem represented Pakistan at the World Scrabble Championship in 2009, attaining the admirable 44th position out of 110 players, some of whom have been playing scrabble even before Waseem was born! read more
