2011 NJCC Champions

The fourth edition of NJCC is just over. The champions are Mohd Nabil Azman Hisham for the Boys category and his younger sister, WCM Nur Nabila Azman Hisham for the Girls category. 

Both of them scored 8/9 points. Nabil lost a game to Roshan Singh while Nabila drew twice, one to her younger sister and another to Nur Sabrina Aliya Asman from Pahang.

As GiLoCatur recalls, a national-level competition won by a sibling in the same year are NM Zarul Shazwan Zullkafli and his twin sister WCM Nur Shazwani Zullkafli. They became the champions in the National Chess Close in 2007.

Congratulation from GiLoCatur to both new NJMs. Hopefully, both of them will continue this success in future tournaments and become Malaysian Grand Masters.
