Lately the Residents Association of Kelana Jaya Customs Quarters has been active organizing chess tournaments especially for the Under 12 category. One of the key persons for this to happen is RIZAL A KAMAL, a chess player and a chess coach.
Surely, the Malaysian chess community is happy for such effort. Therefore, the community especially the chess parents need to support the tournament by bringing their chess-playing children to take part in the tournaments.
On May 19th, the association had organized the Under 12 Customs 1Malaysia Chess Open. Puteri Munajjah had emerged as the champion after five rounds of 30-minute-per-player rapid game. She had edged Yee Jian Yang after winning against him in the fourth round.
On June 9th, Munajjah's eldest brother, Muhd Syakir Shazmeer, had been declared as the champion in the Customs' 1Malaysia Chess Open. He won all his six rounds to emerge on the top of nearly forty participants.
