The playing hall in SMK Tanah Merah 1

Kelantan MSSK Chess Championship started with a controversy. However, it ended yesterday with a success. The selected players are worthy of their places on the Kelantan bus for the trip this year to Terengganu. The battle this year was very intense; there were no clear winners for each category, except the Male U-18 where Fadhil Aiman from Kuala Krai led the pack with a clear point advantage. One note of importance - Kelantan contingent will bring a dark horse to the nationals; Nor Laila Sari, an orang asli from Gua Musang, who creamed everybody in Female U-12 category up to the 6th round!. Even though she eventually lost her 7th round game and drew the last, she still managed to get third placing.

Tumpat players, try again next year

There was no joy for Tumpat players this year. I will not point out anything in particular, but this year was very different from previous year in every way. But all that could only be explained in one word - COMMITMENT. In order to succeed, everybody has to give their utmost commitment. The players, the officials, the teachers and also the PPD itself must play their part if we are to continuously send players to represent Kelantan to the national championship. 

Nevertheless, congratulations to all winners and GOOD LUCK!

As for representatives from my school, especially Maznie, thanks for your commitment in trainings. Their results were good enough to make me proud to be their coach:

Maznie lost to the eventual winner, Siti Nur Afiqah, in round 7

Female U-15

8. Maznie (6 points)
24. Nurul Asyikin (4.5 points)
32. Nur Izzatul Elanie (4 points)

Female U-18

32. Engku Nur Aishah (4 points)
