MASUM 2018


Surely, it has been ages GiLoCatur does not update this blog. The final of the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 had just ended with France emerged as the champion. Being a long supporter of the French football team, it is a happy moment for GiLoCatur. 

History has been made. 

France has won for the second time after two decades. The first time was in 1998 FIFA World Cup France. The French team was captained by Didier Deschamps. The name sound familiar right. Yup, it is the Deschamps who is the manager or coach of the winning French football team. He becomes the the third person to win the FIFA World Cup as a player and a manager.

Let's forget about the FIFA World Cup.

MASUM 2018


Actually, GiLoCatur wants to write about MASUM 2018 Chess Championship. This year edition of the championship is hosted by Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK). Chess is one of the sport events in the FASA 1 or First Phase.

Both Fikri and Anis will be taking part representing their university which UiTM. Fikri, GiLoCatur's eldest child and son will be playing for the third time. He made the debut playing in the championship in 2015. Then he took part in the 2016 edition. He skipped playing in last year edition. 

Meanwhile, Fikri's younger sister Anis made her debut in the MASUM championship in 2016 edition. He played as well in last year edition. 

GiLoCatur would like to wish ALL THE BEST and BEST OF LUCK to the UiTM MASUM 2018 chess team especially to Abang (ie Fikri) and Kakak (ie Anis).

Ibu and Ayah always pray for your success!


Below are several photos of both Fikri and Anis in the MASUM Chess Championship from 2015 to 2017 Editions.

MSSM Chess Championship 2017 - Part 2

The Selangor and WP Kuala Lumpur dominance in the L15 Individual event of the 2017 MSSM Chess Championship has been broken. Sarawak has joined Pulau Pinang to dominate the Top Final Ranking for this category in this year edition.

Pulau Pinang has won the Gold medal and Bronze medal in this event. Wong Yinn Long, which is a FM, has emerged as the champion after scoring 5.5/6 points. Muhammad AlFaiz Daud from Sarawak has won the Silver medal after having better Tie Break than Tan Jun Ying of Pulau Pinang. Both have the same 4.5/6 points.

AlFaiz has impressive wins especially against Hafizuddin Zulkifli of WP Putrajaya and Thang Kit Han of Kedah. GiLoCatur hopes Sarawak can nurture further AlFaiz since GiLoCatur believes he has potential to go far in chess.

Another player from Sarawak is Fourth place losing 1 point on Tie Break 1 to Jun Ying. Surprisingly, none from both Selangor and WP Kuala Lumpur is among the Top 10 Final Ranking. GiLoCatur believes both Selangor and WP Kuala Lumpur focus on the L15 Team event. 

Based on the past records, even though Selangor and WP Kuala Lumpur strategize placing their best L15 players in the Team event, their players were still in the Top 10 Final Ranking. Obviously, other states are catching up very well and this is a good sign for the Malaysian chess community.

Congratulation to all the winners especially to the Gold medalist and the champion in this category, Wong Yinn Long.

MSSM Chess Championship 2017

The MSSM Chess Championship 2017 is going to end today. It has started several days ago. Officially, the championship is from 4th until 11th August 2017.

GiLoCatur has followed closely the MSSM Chess Championship since 2009 when GiLoCatur's daughter, Anis Fariha, made her debut appearance representing MSS Selangor.

2017 Edition is hosted by Pahang and is held in Kuantan. GiLoCatur believes that the championship has changed in the quality of games and players. The dominance of Selangor, Pulau Pinang and WP Kuala Lumpur has been challenged by other states.

Unofficially, MSSWP Putrajaya has won its maiden Gold in L12 (Under 12 Boys) Individual event.

Another interesting results is in the L12 Team event. In this edition, the host state Pahang has the chance to become the champion in this category.

In the final round, Pahang plays white against Selangor. Board 1 and Board 3 players of the MSS Pahang L12 Team has impressive results with all five (5) wins.

There are two pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan Chat in the the L12 MSS Pahang Team. GiLoCatur is not sure whether these two are the two impressive Board 1 and Board 3 players.

GiLoCatur's prediction on the match up results for the Pahang - Selangor match up is 1.5 - 2.5. If the results become otherwise, Pahang will clinch the Gold medal for this event.
