Muhd Izz Saifuddin (the above picture) was the champion of the December's First Saturday Chess Classics held at Jax Tham's EXCEL CHESS ACADEMY on 5th and 6th December. He scored 5/6 in the tournament which include several strong Malaysian chess players like Nabil (Haji Rapid Champion), Abdullah Che Hassan, Lim Zhou Ren, Yeap Eng Chiam and Syakir.
TAHNIAH and SYABAS!
The six rounds of 90 minute + 30 seconds tournament is an excellent ground for the local players especially the young guns to have exposure for international chess tournaments. It is an excellent effort by the organizer, Mr Jax Tham, a strong chess player himself. Bravo!
