Draw against a WFM from South Africa in GACC 2004


The Grand Asian Chess Challenge or GACC starts today at 2nd Residential College, University of Malaya. It is an annual chess competition for university students from all over the world. It started with the Asean region in 1996 but gradually upgrade its status to cover students from Asian universities before widening it to the world. However, the acronym GACC is still maintained, even though it do not represent its present status. It is a FIDE rated event, and now already reaching its 12th installments. It is becoming more interesting than before its inception, as nowadays we can see participants (students) who are GMs and IMs. I myself had the opportunities to play in 6 GACCs in 1997-2000, 2002 and the last one in 2004, playing against strong players ranging from the Phillipines to the Mongolia!

Here is a game I won against a rated player from Sri Lanka:
