Kalau nak datang lewat ...

Those who work with IA Encik Hamid Majid will have heard this phrase by now.
It is meant to be a jokingly way to mock those who arrive late for the meeting among the tournament helpers/arbiters..

"Kalau nak datang lewat lebih baik jangan datang"

The list below with circle symbols are those who came late for their round 4 game but luckily it's not zero start. There is a 30 minute waiting time. You can imagine what the Chief Arbiter is telling those players now :)

Penang Open - off to a great start

Opening Speeches







In the speech, Mr Lee spoke about how Penang has become a dominant force competitively among all states in Malaysia.

Clearly, the results speak for themselves, from scholastic/junior chess Penang is MSSM champion this year. Also the recent Inter State was also won by Penang. I was here for the first Penang Open and it was pretty modest with only one GM taking part. The 8th edition of the Penang Open sees 8 GM and a host of other titled players taking part. Total participants are 98 in the Open section and a whopping 223 in the Challengers' section.

This is the biggest chess event in Malaysia second only to the Malaysian Chess Festival.
