Editor’s note: The cage match between Prince Daniel Mulenga (PDM) and International Master (IM) Oladapo Adu (Dapsay) on lichess promises to be an explosive encounter between two highly tactical and combative players who love to go on King hunts in their games. These two players though their playing styles have some similarities, their personalities could not be more different. Dapsay is a man of very few words. When he weighs in during a discussion you can be sure his words have been very carefully considered. PDM on the other hand is a master at starting discussions and debates of all sorts and he is one the forces behind the huge number of chats in the Africa Lichess Events group. Prince’s handle on Lichess is Tactinhos2900 while Adu’s handle is Dapsay. Tonight’s match should be a thriller and certainly one not to be missed. The cage match is a brutal format because if one is in poor forms, results will quickly betray the state of affairs as one of the players runs away with the match.
Players: Tactinhos2900 vs Dapsay
Time: 1800 hrs to 2000 hrs Central African Time
Time Control: 3+2
