MSSM Chess Championship 2015 - Part 3 (Battle of the Giants in Boys Team Event)

Wednesday, 10th June 2015

The MSSM chess championship is halfway now. The Battle of Giants has finally arrived. Let's take a look at the Boys Team Event.

The home team, Pulau Pinang, is among the Top 2 for all the three sections in the Boys Team event. In the L12 section, Pulau Pinang will be challenged by Selangor. Both teams score the maximum 6 match points. Ratings wise, both teams are about equal. Which ever team wins, GiLoCatur believes will cruise through to become the champion.

The home team, Pulau Pinang, is currently leading with full 6 match points in the L15 category followed by Selangor. Clearly, the former has the upper edge ratings wise. Can Selangor stop Pulau Pinang to grab the Gold medal in this category?

In the L18 category, both WP Kuala Lumpur and Pulau Pinang are the leaders after Round 3. Both have scored full 6 points. But based on second tie break ie game points, the former has 1 1/2 point more than the latter. This match up is balance to GiLoCatur and would be intensifying.

It is clearly, Pulau Pinang has very strong teams in all the Boys sections. Will the state win Gold medal in each Boys Team category?
