19th GACC - the UiTM Players Standing

The 19th Grand Asian Chess Challenge (GACC) International Inter-Varsity Chess Championship had just ended about a week ago. 

GiLoCatur's eldest child, Fikri, took part in his maiden appearance in the championship. He represents Universiti Teknologi Mara or UiTM along with 4 other male and 6 female chess players. As to GiLoCatur's checking, UiTM had not taken part in 2012, 2013 and 2014 editions for sure. 

So, how is the the performance of the UiTM chess players?

Final Ranking of the UiTM players in the 19th GACC
Three players had scored 5.5/9 points. All of them are placed 22nd, 25th and 29th respectively. Two players each scoring 5 and 4 points. The five pointers are the male players while the four pointers are the female players. Whereas the other four female UiTM players scored 3.5/9 points. 

A very commendable performance GiLoCatur thinks for all the UiTM chess players. GiLoCatur believes that they have gained lots of experience and exposure that will be beneficial in local chess scene.
