The selection, which was held on 18th - 19th April 2009 at The Dato' Athur Tan Chess Centre, Kuala Lumpur, saw the only Kelantan representative, Laila Husna Sahadi (picture right), soundly beaten by her compatriots in under-14 group. She battled her wits against Amira Syahmina, Pavitranayagi, and the eventual group champion, Hoh Tjin Li, but failed to overcome them and finished without a single point. The result showed that Kelantan chess is not quite up to par with other states' chess development as yet, but having a representative for this prestigous event promised a bright future for Kelantan youths.

But Laila, don't be discourage! Try again next year. The full results (taken from MCF's website):
