2014 Malaysian Women Masters

The name list for this year's Women Masters is out.

Our highest rated women, Alia Bakri , is back after a long hiatus. It will be interesting to see how she fares amongst the current crop of top women.

A newcomer is Najihah Mohd Saufi who is rated way below the others at just 1518. She qualified by virtue of coming in the top three from the Nationals. I had some chance to watch her games at the Nationals. She has potential but will find this Masters a little out of her league as everyone is already very experienced and around for a very long time.

The top five in this Masters will get the opportunity to represent Malaysia at Tromso Olympiad later in the year. Best of luck to everyone.
