Wednesday, 13th April, Shah Alam.
Two of GiLoCatur's children - Anis Fariha and Fahim Al-Faqeh, are participating in the scholastic MSS district chess tournament. Anis who had been playing in the PETALING PERDANA district for the past three years, is playing in MSSD Kuala Selangor this year. The chess tournament is being held at SMK Saujana Utama which is located about 20 kilometers from GiLoCatur's home. All the six categories - P12, L12, P15, L15, P18 and L18, are held concurrently at the school's Gemilang Hall.
While Fahim who is in his second year representing his school, SK Bukit Jelutong, participates in the MSSD Petaling Perdana chess tournament. The event which is just for P12 and L12 (primary school) categories is held at SK Sesksyen 9, Shah Alam. 162 boys and 97 girls from the PPD's schools take part in the L12 and P12 categories respectively.
How they performed so far? Anis won all her first five games. She was defeated by Nur Nabila, the top seed in her category, in the sixth round. The final seventh round will be played tomorrow. While Fahim managed to win all his four rounds today. He will play five more games tomorrow. Hopefully, he will continue his winning streak tomorrow.
