The time has come for Malaysian juniors to fight for the 4th National Junior Master titles. The championship will start tomorrow morning. Where it will be held? The playing venue is DATCC located at the fourth floor of the Wilayah Shopping Complex. All the three GiLoCatur's kids will take part in the championship.
Let's check out the starting players list for the Girls section.
The number of participants for this 4th edition is not encouraging. It is only 21 players listed. GiLoCatur adds Cheong Keat Zhen to the list because she is a female / girl player. Last year, she was in the Girls category whose number of participants was more than thirty (30).
Based on the ratings info compiled by GiLoCatur, WCM Nur Nabila and her younger sister, WFM Nur Najiha, will be the top two seeds. For GiLoCatur, they are the hot favourites to be the new WNJM since the defending champion does not take part this year.
Obviously, several names are missing this year. Or would there be more names tomorrow before Round 1 kicks off?
