Are You Ready For Penang Chess Open?

GiLoCatur and family had arrived in Penang several hours ago. GiLoCatur believes all the participants for the Penang Chess Open have already arrived too. The venue of the tournament is Tanjung Bungah Beach Hotel (below picture).

Fikri will play in the Open with 73 other chess players. He is seeded 49th with Elo ratings 1690. In the first round tomorrow morning, he is paired with the 12th seed, a player from Philippines who has Elo ratings of 2277. A tough opponent indeed for Fikri.

While Anis will take part in the Challengers category. With Elo ratings of 1588, she is ranked 14th out of total 138 participants.

GiLoCatur hopes both of them will play their best in the tournament.

GiLoCatur will try to update the tournament from time to time via twitter. So, FOLLOW GILOCATUR's TWITTER, ok!
