Welcome Home Malaysian Chess Contingent From 12th Tarakan Asean+ Age Group Chess Championship

Selamat Pulang or welcome home to all the Malaysian chess contingent of 30 players and 15 accompanying  adults from Tarakan Island, Indonesia after participating in the recently concluded 12th Asean+ Age Group Chess Championship. Malaysia won 4 Golds, 6 Silvers and 4 Bronzes.

Puteri Munajjah - 4 Golds

Puteri Munajjah or popularly known as Eja (above photo), one of the U10 dream team members, had won four gold medals - two in Individual and another two in Team. She is the champion for both Girls 10 Blitz and Rapid. Beside Eja, Nur Nabila is another winner in the blitz competition. She won the silver medal in the Girls U14. Teh De Juan, Teh De Zen and Tan Li Ting make Malaysia proud in the standard format. All of them are the silver medalists. To GiLoCatur's knowledge, De Juan will be awarded CM or Candidate Master while both De Zen and Li Ting will be awarded  WCM or Women Candidate Master for being the first runner ups.

SYABAS and TAHNIAH to Eja and all the medalists among the Malaysian chess contingent. Keep learning and practicing to become chess masters and champions. See you in Vietnam next year.
