The P15 (Under 15 Girls) individual category is another favourite one for GiLoCatur. The two Azman Hisham sisters - Nur Nabila and Nur Najiha representing Selangor are the top favourites to win this category. They will be challenged strongly by Fairuz Hamizah from Kedah who was the first runner up last year. It will be more interesting if both Tan Li Ting and Camelia from WP take part in this category. Unfortunately, they choose to play in the team event. It is also interesting to see how few other players like Wong Ing Nge Ing Nge (Sarawak), Siti Aisyah (Terengganu), Nur Sabrina (Pahang) and Jessica (N9) will perform and add the challenges.
In the absence of Alia, Amirah from Selangor looks set to become the champion in the P18 (Under 18 Girls) individual category this year. Sarika from Pahang will try as hard as possible to deny that. Another tough contender is Pavitranayagi from WP. Last year, she played in the P15 team event. Kelantan-born Laila Husna who represents Johor is another player who has a chance to win this category. GiLoCatur considers her as the underdog.
All of the above is just GiLoCatur's opinion. You may have different opinion. So, ALL THE BEST to all the chess athletes who compete in the 2012 MSSM Chess Championship.
