Penang is 4th in Asian Cities

The Penang team did very well to finish in 4th position in the Asian Cities Team Championship in India just last month.

Their final score of 5 wins 2 draws and 2 losses puts them just behind Dhaka, thus missing a podium finish. The team was in third position after seven rounds. A round eight loss to final third placed Dhaka, denied them the bronze medal.


 

The team performance is commendable especially as several members of the team won board prizes. They are

Board 1 (Silver) for Looi Xin Hao

Board 2 (Bronze) for Wong Yinn Loong

Board 4 (Bronze) for Tan Jun Ying
