GiLoCatur and family (except Fikri) just arrived home less than one hour ago from Uptown Shah Alam. GiLoCatur and both the only daughter and the youngest son participated in the six round 15-minute (G/15) chess tournament organized by Uptown Shah Alam. Fifty six players mostly from Shah Alam and nearby areas enrolled in the tournament held at night. But some of them came from quite far like Ipoh, Melaka and Johor Baharu for the love and passion of chess. GiLoCatur is quite happy with own performance. GiLoCatur just wants to have fun and enjoy playing chess in the tournament. GiLoCatur won against 1498-rated opponent in the third round and drew with 1580-rated opponent in the fourth round.
GiLoCatur is feeling very sleepy now, therefore can not update the blog further. By the way, you can check out the photos of the tournament at http://mychessdiari.blogspot.com/2010/02/photos-uptown-shah-alam-chess.html
