SMS Gold takes gold

SMS Gold is the champion in the inaugural DAT Chess Centre Team League 2009. They completed their last round assignment with a clean 4-0 sweep over the women's team Persatuan Catur Wanita Malaysia (PCWM). I thought the fourth board Camila had the slightly better position and would at least hold a draw, but her inexperience cost her. She is quite a natural player and should get a coach, if she does not already have one.

The championship was decided in the two matches between the two favourites, SMS Gold and Gold IS. SMS Gold won the first match 3-1 and drew the return and this effectively decided the eventual winner as no other team was capable of creating an upset against the favourites.
