Abdullah won the 8th place at the 4th Temerloh Open
On-form Abdullah Che Hassan won back-to-back chess tournaments this weekend. On Saturday, he played in Kuantan for the 2nd Kuantan Rapid Chess Tournament. He won all his seven rounds and scored the perfect 7. And on Sunday, he was back home to his hometown JB to play and win the 20th Tebrau Chess Open. He won it impressively with the perfect 7 score.
The opponents that Abdullah beat at the 2nd Kuantan Rapid Open
At Temerloh Open, Abdullah just managed to win the 8th place after +5-2. he lost to Abd Khalid Musa and Hamidi Taib. In the first round, Abdullah played black againts GiLoCatur on the third board. Surely, not a good match between 1892-rated player versus 1143-rated. LOL! But not really a bad game either for GiLoCatur he he he. GiLoCatur resigned after 23rd move when left with less than 2 minutes while he still had more than 20 minutes. Below is our game. (GiLoCatur hopes anyone will help with the analysis.)
