Sunday, 12th August 2012

Fifty three chess players aged between 13 and 17 years old took part in the Under 17 (U17) section of "Piala MB Selangor" chess tournament yesterday. They battled seven rounds of rapid chess games. Who emerged as the champion? Who are the fifteen winners in this category?

With 6/7 points and better tie break, Shreyes Subramaniam, the 4th seed, became the champion in the Under 17 section. The first runner up is Muhd Irfan Haqqim Azhar who also scored 6/7 points. The top seed, Faizal Roslan, just managed the third spot with 5.5 / 7 points edging the other 5.5 pointer, Cheong Jie Yao.

How about GiLoCatur's eldest son, Fikri? Fikri scored 5/7 points after losing two games to both Faizal and Irfan. Check out below final ranking and several photos of the U17 category.
