Sarawak Open Is Next

Penang Open is over. Sarawak Open is next. It will start on Monday, 12th December 2011 (12.12.11) and end on Friday, 16th December 2011 (16.12.11).

To flash back, GiLoCatur played in the Sarawak Open three years ago. GiLoCatur flew to Kuching, Sarawak with Fikri and Mohd Irfan Haqqim, Azhar's son. Mind you, in 2008 GiLoCatur took part in two standard chess competitions - Selangor Open and Sarawak Open. GiLoCatur's MCF ratings at that time was below 1000.

Checking the registered players list in Mr Lim Kian Hwa's website here, several players who played in the recently concluded Penang Open, will play in the Sarawak Open like Kamaluddin Yusoff and Nik Farouqi (local players) and IM Atanu Lahiri, Rhoebel Legaspi and Efren Bagamasbad (foreign players).

After the Sarawak Open, a chess tournament for Malaysian juniors (Under 20) will be held at DATCC. The name of the tournament is the National Junior Chess Championship (NJCC). This year will be its fourth edition.
