National Closed Updates

I am at DATCC reporting for the National Closed Chess Championship 2009. This is interesting! Who would have thought NWM this year will goes to Tan Li Ting. THe youngest NWM title holder! She is only 11 years old (I reported she is 9 before, sorry, the real fact she is 11 years old). Since she was born on 8th September 1998, that makes her the youngest. Because, Siti Zulaika who won it 10 years ago in 1998 was also 11 years old, but she was born on 1st May 1988. Only about 4 months separation, and Siti's record is finally broken. What can I say, welcome to the club Tan Li Ting!

Surprises for the NM title competition is not for sure belongs to Lim Zhuo Ren, surprise surprise! Lim lost to Edward, Abel lost to Abdullah Che Hassan, Evan Capel won. So, 4 players with 6 points going for the play off - NM Edward, Abdullah, Evan and Lim Zhuo Ren!

MCF decided to have the closing first, so I'll update the NM results later!
