Tuesday, November 15, 2011
After just completed reading a thriller novel titled PENUNGGU RIMBA TOMBIRUO by Ramlee Awang Murshid bought on last Sunday, GiLoCatur quickly went online to check on the results of chess Mixed pair event in the ongoing SEA Games.
Six countries including Malaysia are taking part in the five-round Mixed pair category. Malaysia is represented by IM Lim Yee Weng and WFM Nur Najiha Azman Hisham. The former is the seventh seed while the latter is the second last seed out of total 12 participants.
Today Round 3 had been held. Malaysia was paired against the host country, Indonesia. GiLoCatur is so glad and surprise that Malaysia won. The Indonesian pair - GM Susanto Megaranto and WGM Irine Kharisma Iskandar is the hot favourite to win the Mixed pair category. Syabas and tahniah to both Yee Weng and Najiha on the win. It shows that Malaysia Boleh!
In the first round, Malaysia lost to Vietnam 0 - 2. Then, Malaysia came back in the second round to beat Thailand by 2 - 0 score. The fourth round is very important to Malaysia when it will be paired against Philippines which also won over Indonesia with the same score, 1.5 - 0.5.
