Sulaiman Johari overcame the odds to emerge as the first champion of the Silent Knight Rapid Tournament ahead of the tournament favourite, Abdullah Che Hassan. He collected 5 wins and lost a game to Abdullah, but won because of a better tie break. Abdullah took second place with also 5 wins but his winning streak was stopped short by third place winner in the last round, Abdul Khalid Musa. Siti Aishah Sabirin edged a host of male players to become champions of under-18 (and under-12) category with 6 straight wins. This include a win against her closest rival, Wan Muhammad Imran, who lost in the last round and took second place. Third place was given to Noor Hisyam Ahyat who also had 5 points but with a weaker tie break.
