Raja Nazrin Shah International Masters and Open

I am very surprised there is so little news coverage of this major event.

This is scheduled to start 4th September with a Masters (invitation only) and an Open.

The complete list of participants in the Masters -

1. GM Nguyen Anh Dung
2. GM Tahir Vakhidov
3. GM Niaz Murshed
4. GM Dr. Wong Meng Kong
5. IM Oliver Barbosa
6. IM Nguyen Van Huy
7. IM Kevin Goh Wei Ming
8. IM/WGM Tania Sachdev
9. IM Mas Hafizulhelmi
10. IM (Conditional) Jahongir Vakhidov

Great to see our Singaporean friend IM Kevin Goh in the starting list. He will be gunning for his second GM norm! IM Mas Hafizul is the only Malaysian representative in the Masters and he will have another shot at the GM norm.Good luck to both of them!

If you are interested in joining the Open, more details here and here

Hi Jimmy,
Too bad you can't play this year and I do appreciate your mentioning the Raja Nazrin Shah.
End of the day whatever we do only makes sense if the next generation steps forward and takes advantage - it is great that our National Champion Lim Zhou Ren has entered and I hope that our National Age Group winners also step up to take advantage of MCF's request we provide free entry.
