Today 44 teams had participated in the Tan Sri Zahiruddin (TSZ) of University Malaya (UM) chess tournament. Below are the results as per emailed by Najib Wahab. The tournament is a bit unique because not many team chess tournaments organized in Malaysia. The format is rapid six Swiss rounds.
GiLoCatur's children did not participate in the event. Anis had a school program during the weekend. Fikri will have an exam next week and had last minute "balik wajib". They both participated in this event in 2008 which was held in March along with two other their SKBJ (Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Jelutong) chess friends, Nur Faqihah and Aminur Nirza. Their team was known as "SKBJ Marvellous Knights" and was among 21 teams participated. GiLoCatur wrote about this in the old version of SKBJ Chess Club blog at googlepages as per here.
