National Closed (Women) 2009
NWM Tan Li Ting
I am back here in Kuantan now, in the office as usual. But yesterday National Closed final day will not be forgotten. This is the first time, I felt excited to know the final result, because at the very end, final rounds or the play off is decided. Unlike last year, the sure winner takes home the title before the final round started.
Renitha who won her final game against another Johorian, Kwan Tze Yeung, is looking good with her 6.5 points from 9 rounds. She is for sure hoping for Haslindah to won her game or at least drew her game against Tan Li Ting. Because both of them (Renitha and Tan Li Ting have met during the course of the NCW 09, therefore no play-offs shall be play, since the PE is there to decide). But her hope dashed when Haslindah made a blunder giving one piece up for Tan Li Ting. Finally Tan Li Ting won her game. She ended with her 6.5 points but with better tie-break!
Congratulations to Tan Li Ting for not just being the youngest NWM, but also for joining the club of the series NWM champ! now we ladies have added one more member for the NWM title.
