Malaysian Chess Festival 2010 begins

Malaysian Chess Festival 2010 begins with the Individual Rapid Tournament which kicks off this morning. This is a new addition to the Chess Festival.

This year, besides the usual Open, Ambank and Age Groups there will be a Seniors tournament as well. This is for those 55 years and above. Prizes are attractive too, RM4000 for the Open, and also sections for 65-74 and above 75 years old with RM2000 and RM2000 for the 1st prize.

I will not be competing in the Individual Rapid but only begin playing tomorrow in the Team Rapids followed by the main Open tournament. Quite a number of leave have to be taken for this event which leaves me with no more annual leave for the rest of the year.
