About 160 players participated in the MBSA Chess Open held at a hall in Section 4, Shah Alam on last 27th December 2008. It is very good news for Shah Alam residents especially since Shah Alam used to have many chess tounaments organized in the past. Shah Alam is also used to be called "Bandar Catur" or The Chess City. Hopefully, MBSA will organize many more such tournaments every year. The winners were presented their prizes by the Shah Alam Deputy mayor, Encik Mokhtar Hani, and MBSA Zone 5 council committee, Mr Soo Kim Ling.
