Tarakan Asean+ Age Group Chess Championship Update 5

Six rounds of the standard competition had completed. The Malaysian players scored 9 wins and 6 draws. Not a good results since only half of them managed to score points. Whatever it is the championship is not over yet. The standard tourney is entering the critical final stage. Our juniors need to stay fighting until the end. 

Our best hope is in Under 10 section. In the boys category, even though De Juan lose his sixth round, he is still on top sharing 5/6 points with two Indonesian players - Ivan Maxmillian Putra and Catur Adi Sagita (what a name). Hope he wins tomorrow morning to cruise through the final round and emerge champion.

Playing in the Girls U10 category, De Zen (above picture) is the best performer among the Malaysian contingent so far. She won her two games today. With 5.5/6 points she is the current leader followed behind half point by a Mongolian player and compatriot, Puteri Munajjah by one point in the third place. From GiLoCatur's calculation based on the, Malaysia has a very good chance to claim gold for the team medal in this category. The Malaysian G10 team is leading Vietnam by one full point.
