Amangul Durdyeva - 1st GAYP Woman World Champion !

Postby Alex_Moiseyev on Mon Apr 17, 2006 10:36 pm

Amangul Durdyeva is World GAYP Champion!

During the past week Jan Mortimer (New Zealand) has withdrawn her
right to play a match for the vacant women's World GAYP title against
Amangul Durdyeva (Turkmenistan) due to pressing family committments.

The motion from the General Assembly meeting (2005) was for the top
two players to play a match for the vacant title. It did not make
provision for any other player to be involved should either of them
withdraw. This effectively means that Amangul Durdyeva now becomes
the 1st official women's World GAYP Champion. Congratulation Amangul!

It is unfortinuate that Jan has had to withdraw at this time but from
her consistant high standard of play over recent years it is clear
that she will be back again after a short break to make her claim to
these world titles again and we look forward to that.

Regards: Hugh Devlin.
President WCDF.


Congratulations to Amangul with her World Title ! She well deserved to have it. To the best of my knowedleges - Amangul plans to attend Woman 3-move QT in Stonehaven and challenge Patricia Breen, if she wins QT. Lets wish Amangul good luck in her checkers career !

I join with Hugh and hope Jan will be back to business in the very nearest future.
