MASUM 2015 Chess Thumb Ups

MASUM 2015 Sports Carnival had just ended several days ago. Chess is one of the sports being competed. GiLoCatur's eldest child, Fikri, had made his debut in MASUM representing Universiti Teknologi Malaysia aka UiTM.

Below are several thumb ups that GiLoCatur would like to share here on MASUM 2015 Chess.

No 1 - Key In Games Facility

Among the thumb ups that GiLoCatur would like to praise on MASUM 2015 Chess is the pgn which is available on the website. At first GiLoCatur thought that there are volunteers who key in the games. From the photos shared by the UTM's chess team coach, Dr Nasrul, GiLoCatur finally knew that the players themselves keyed in their games. This is very good. GiLoCatur hopes that this key in games facility to continue in future editions. GiLoCatur does not know whose idea is it, but KUDOS to whomever came up with the idea of the key in games facility.

No 2 - Pairings and Results on website

The chess tournaments like MASUM 2015 should be published online ie Having arbiters from Fadli's Cerdik Catur is a very good decision for MASUM 2015 host and organizer. The pairings and results are up to date. Chess enthusiasts like GiLoCatur are able to follow the event and have latest updates on the pairings and results.

No 3 - Very Conducive Playing Venue

From the photo shared by Dr Nasrul on the tournament venue, GiLoCatur is very impressive with the tournament hall. It is very conducive and comfortable. Kudos to the host, UTM, and organizer for providing a very nice venue for chess in the MASUM 2015.

No 4 - Lots of Photos in the Facebook

By watching the photos for every round and the closing ceremony uploaded by Dr Nasrul in his facebook, GiLoCatur feels like at the tournament venue. This is a promotion to chess itself. Chess is not a favourite sport being published in the media both paper and electronic.
