SEA Games - Standard Chess Event

The Standard Chess event will start today at 2.30pm. Malaysia will be represented by IM Jimmy Liew in the Men category and 13-year-old Camilia Johari in the Women category.

Based on the starting list below, only six contestants in the Men category and five contestants in the Women category. GiLoCatur strongly believe Malaysia has a good chance to win medal in both categories. The top and hot favourites to win the Gold medals in this event are GM Wesley So from Philippines for Men and WGM Irine Kharisma Sukandar from Indonesia for Women. 

Three events in Chess had completed. Vietnam has won two (2) Gold medals and Thailand has won one (1).  Vietnam won Gold in Blindfold and Mixed Pair events while Thailand won Gold in Asean Chess.
