Blitz Chess Fever

Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya organized a carnival early this morning at Taman Wawasan in Puchong. Amongst the games that were involved are basketball, futsal, congkat, carrom , coloring and well, chess.

Organized by Cerdik Catur Enterprises, this was a 10 round blitz event with a RM250 first prize. Total prizes were up to ten. Since this is right where I live, I turned up at 9:00 AM and found a strong list of contenders. Mohd Saprin fresh from his victory at UPSI, Kamaluddin Yusoff, the Azman siblings , our SEA Games rep Ronnie Lim, Syazwan and  Yeoh Li Tian and his father also turned up.

Yeoh Li Tian drew the first round against his father and was unstoppable after that with eight straight wins. A last round draw with Fadzil Nayan and he pocketed the first prize.

I was second and earned RM150 while Kamaluddin Yusoff took third prize of RM100. Nur Nabila was fourth.
