Today, there were two chess tourneys in KL. The first one is StoneMaster Amateur Special Edition Limited which was held at the Cochrane's Excellent Sports Center. More than 100 chess players who have national ratings below 1650 including several GiLoCatur's chess buddies like Cikgu Suhairi, Ng6, Syed, Sahir and Zullghafari (just to name a few) were participating. They played 8 rounds of rapid chess games.
Cikgu Suhairi was leading the pack after the sixth round when he had a perfect 6/6 score. Finally, he was the second runner up. Ng6 who played his 17ChessClub gang, Syed, in the final round on the top board was placed fifth while his opponent was the first runner up.
Check out the photos of the top 10 winners at Ng6's blog here.
