In about two hours, 92 male and 36 female Malaysian chess players will start their journey in National Closed chess championship. The event will be held at the DAT Chess Center located at the foutth floor of Wilayah Complex, Kuala Lumpur. The list of the participants is already in the chess-results.com. Some played last year, some did not. Let's see several photos of last year NC captured by GiLoCatur held in Bangi.
Both Yeoh Li Tian (left) and Mohd Khair Wahiduddin (right) will take part this year where they are seeded 6th and 7th respectively.
The above two pictures show the women / girls players who took part in last year edition. Can WCM Fong Mi Yen defend her title? Will former NWMs Alia and Li Ting emerge as the champion again? Or will either one of the Azman Hisham sisters - WCM Nur Nabila and WFM Nur Najiha emerge as the champion this time? We will wait and see until the championship is over to find out, won't we?
Former National Master Kamalariffin (left) does not take part this year, but his opponent Ahmad Fadzil Nayan (right) will be playing.
Can Nabil win the championship this year? He has extra motivation after emerged as the champion of the Under 18 age group two days ago in Tronoh, Perak.
GiLoCatur just noticed that last year edition was held between 16th to 20th June. This year edition? The same dates too - 16th to 20th March. Can next year edition has the same dates too? Sure, if it is held in the month of MAY. :)-
By the way, BEST OF LUCK TO ALL PLAYERS including GiLoCatur's son, Fikri, and daughter, Anis Fariha. SEE YOU THERE!
