2011 NAG is over

Naturally the Under-18 Boys section is the most interesting to follow. The Under-18 Boys was won by Muhd Nabil very convincingly. He scored 7 out of a possible 8, drawing two games and losing none. The runner ups are Mark Siew and Low Jun Jian with 5.5 points. These three are amongst those I identified as the most promising juniors here.

The top two seeds , Evan Capel and Sumant Subramaniam cannot be too happy with their score of 5 points. Both lost three games with Evan losing to both Sumant and Nabil while Sumant lost to Nabil and Jun Jian. That Nabil met and beat both the top seeds proves that his winning the title is thoroughly deserved.

In the Under-16, Wong Jianwen continues his good performance after winning last month's Renegade tournament. He finished with an astonishing 8/8 outdistancing his main rival Yeap Eng Chiam who scored 6.5/8.

The Under 18 Girls section seems to be missing from the results. In the Girls Under-18 Under-14, Tan Li Ting and Nur Nabila finished with identical 7 points. Li Ting is the champion as she beat Nur Nabila. In my opinion, both of them could have competed in the Under-16 section and be in contention for the champion. However the rules prevented anyone from entering above their age group.

The only other perfect 8 score was posted by Teh De Zen in the Girls Under-10 section.

Congratulations to all the winners.

The results for the U18 girls were published way earlier as there were only 7 players, hence only 7 rounds. Here are the results:

As for Li Ting and Nabila's category, I believe you meant U14. And not sure if you consider U8 a category, but Goh Jie Yi (Girls U8) also scored 8/8 as you listed above.
