TYM Grand Finale

Thursday, 31.12.2015

Today is the last day for the year 2015. How time flies.

Tonight at 9.00pm, the TYM Grand Finale will kick off its first round. Many don't know what TYM stands for. Actually, TYM is the abbreviation for "Tonomen Yuran Murah" or Inexpensive Fee Tournament in English. Ofcourse, it is a CHESS tournament. What do you think? 

"Pay Less, Play More" is the motto for the TYM. Thus, its fee is very cheap which is TWO Malaysian Ringgits. By paying such amount of money the participants will play six rounds of 10-minute-per-player chess game. The TYM which began on 1st September 2015 is held on weekday nights. The venue for the TYM is Pintar Bistari Chess Center located in Section 7, Shah Alam, and owned by one of Malaysian chess enthusiasts, Mr Halim Shuhaimi.
