UPSI Chess Open Update

Thanks to Kaber for uploading the pairing and results of the UPSI chess open at GiLoCatur could follow the tournament. Actually, at the time of this blog entry, GiLoCatur and wife are at SM Sains Alam Shah, Cheras visiting GiLoCatur's eldest son, Fikri, who in less than two weeks will sit for SPM examination. 

Why only GiLoCatur and wife, eh? Where is Fahim? In fact, Fahim is having a scout camping in Shah Alam. His camping will end tomorrow. 

Back to the UPSI chess open, GiLoCatur believes the fourth round is on going. Three rounds had completed. There are three categories in which the participants take part. In the age-group categories, the top six players live up to their ranking where they are paired against each other on the top three boards.

In the Open category, Ian Udani attempts to making another history to once again become the champion. He is ranked second. The best bet to stop Ian is IM Mas who is the top seed in this year edition. For sure, IM Mas also wants to put his name in the record to score another victory as the champion. As GiLoCatur recall, there are only three names who have become the UPSI chess open champions. Ian, IM Mas and Syakir.
