N9 Open Age Group

Yesterday, GiLoCatur went to Seremban Parade using the commuter. GiLoCatur brought along Fahim and Anis. It took us more than two hours for the commuter ride from Batu 3 station to Seremban. Both Anis and Fahim took part in the Negeri Sembilan Open in the age group category - U18 and U12 respectively.

Do you want to know the Final Ranking after Round 7?

Under 12 category

The total players took part in this category is 46. Puteri Rifqah Fahada came out as the champion. She won six games and drew one. She scored 6.5/7 points. She was awarded prize money reward of three hundreds Malaysian Ringgits.

Below is the Top 25 Final Ranking after Round 7.

U12 Champion

Fahim lost his final round when he played against Amir Muqqri Mohd Saprin. Therefore, he missed to be among the winners.

Under 18 category

In U18 section, Rifqah's elder brother Syakir Shazmeer Azhar won all his seven rounds to become the champion. He beat other 125 participants in this category. He received the prize money award of four hundreds Malaysian Ringgits.

U18 champion

Anis Fariha lost only two games so that she scored 5/7 points. She was placed 24th. It was a very tough competition.

Today, the open category will be held. The champion will be rewarded ONE THOUSAND Malaysian Ringgits. A number of players who played in the age group yesterday will take part today. GiLoCatur was told that IM Mas and FM Nicholas Chan will be taking part. Besides the two of them Malaysian-based Filipino Ian Udani will also take part. All of them are among the top players (have MCF rating of 2200 and above) to beat in the local chess competition.

Will one of them become the champion? Or will other player make an upset to win the N9 Open?
