Impressive "Girl" In The 44th Selangor Chess Open

The 44th Edition of the Selangor Chess Open is entering its 6th round out of total 9 rounds. There are two categories in the championship which are The Open section and the Challenger section. 

What GiLoCatur wants to write in this blog entry is about a small girl, 9 years old, which has impressive results thus far in the Open section. GiLoCatur just knew and firstly noticed about the girl during the International Classical Chess Championship (ICCC) being held a month ago. In the ICCC last month, the girl took part in the Challenger section.

The girl had won against a WCM opponent and drew with an IM opponent in the third round and fifth round respectively. In the fourth round, she defeated 2000-elo-rated opponent.

Would you like to know who the "Girl" is?

The name of the girl is Samantha Edithso, a nine-year-old chess player from Indonesia.
