Who is the king of Malaysian chess for this year for men and women respectively?
Nur Nabila Azman Hisham (above picture, left) was crowned the National Woman Master or NWM (WNM some people call). She scored 7.5/9 points in the recently concluded Malaysian National Closed Chess Championship. She drew with the defending champion, WCM Fong Mi Yen in the fourth round. Anis Fariha, GiLoCatur's daughter, is one of the new champion's six beaten opponents. She played Anis in the second last round.
While Lim Zhou Ren (above picture, left) or well known with his name abbreviation of LZR is the proud new Malaysian National Master (NM). He cruised all the way until the eight round where he drew with the young talented chess player, Yeoh Li Tian. GiLoCatur's eldest son, Fikri was LZR's first victims. Fireyrook published the game between LZR and Fikri here. In the final round, NM Zhou Ren played white against the Malaysian first International Master, Jimmy Liew. The game drew. With that result, he scored 8/9 points.
SYABAS and TAHNIAH to NM LIM ZHOU REN and NWM NUR NABILA AZMAN HISHAM!
Both of you deserve to be the kings of Malaysian chess for this year.
