IM MAS AND NAF AT PENANG OPEN
Two Kelantanese are flying the state flag at the Penang Open held from 8 - 12 December 2010. IM Mas Hafizulhelmi, ranked third in the event, started well with 2 wins out of 2 games by defeating Limono Handjojo (1845) and NM Tan Khai Boon (2126). Tomorrow he will face Ian Udani, a Pinoy who won lots of tournament in Malaysia. Meanwhile, Nik Ahmad Farouqi (picture above) also started well with a win and a draw. Tomorrow he will face a tough test against IM Ranola Yves, also from the Philippine. We hope that both of them will 'bring back the medals' along with our blessings.
