27th SEA Games - Chess960 results

At the 27th SEA Games in Myanmar, the Chess960 rapid event was concluded yesterday. The gold was taken by Indonesian GM Susanto Megaranto while Filipino GM John Paul Gomez took the silver.

Malaysian representation Lim Zhuo Ren had a great chance at silver/bronze as he was in 2nd place prior to the final round. He was paired with Vietnamese GM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son. A draw would have brought silver for Zhuo Ren. Unfortunately he lost to the Vietnamese who took the bronze instead.

Today is the start of the ASEAN chess and International Rapid. Our representatives in the International Rapid are Nur Najiha, Camilia Johari, Wong JianWen and Lim Yee Weng . In ASEAN chess, we have two youngsters, Teh Qing Hong and Arif Alauddin Wafi Akhramsyah taking part.
