KASUGI 1st day report

The Kasugi Chess Team event has started today at Cititel Express. Many top Malaysian chess player were here, including FM Nicholas Chan, IM Mok Tze Meng, FM Ronnie Lim and IM Jimmy Liew! Besides that, Kasugi has also attracted strong foreign players from Philippines, Indonesia and Brunei, such as IM Nolte Rolando, Ian Udani, IM Bancod Ronald, FM Yee Soon Wei (BRU) and FM Pitra Andika (INA). The time control is 45 minutes to the end of the game. 4 IM, 4 FM and 1 CM in all were present in this event.

 It was a tragic morning for me as my team 1st board could not arrived. I would not be blogging about this event if not for a last minute replacement in our team. In fact, there was also a team which only have 3 players after one of their member could not play.
