2nd Round DATCC chess League on 29th April 2009

I took half day leave to take part in the DATCC league, and got straight home by bus at night juz right after the game ended.. Crazy me huh!? Since I was too busy with the income tax month in april, I forgot to bring my camera to KL.. Aduish!!!!

As I expected my team is playing against Nusa Mahkota team on table 4, and my assumption that Hairulov will be playing is correct too! Last night game is a battle between bloggers!!! hahaha.. it was a very interesting game, I planned it to be that way, but I ended it pretty bad, i cant seem to find the finishing touch to the game, so, I lost! I am sad though that I lost the game ( I mean really sad since the team got thrashed really bad by our opponents) but credit to Hairul who fought well!

Also saw players whom were absent last week took part last night, including Lim Yee Weng, Mohd Irman, Mohd Khair, etc...

I will be in KL again tomorrow for the Paralimpik Selection Games held at Sek Men Pendidikan Khas Setapak, hope I remember to bring my camera this time.

Full reports and results of both DATCC Chess League and the Paralimpik Selection will be posted once I am back in Kuantan.

25.White to move

In the position above as you can see Black has an advantage by one pawn.The question is

a)Is it possible for White to do something and prevent from losing?
b)Can Black easily win in this position?

Thanks again cikgu for solving problem 24.1...Qg8 is the key move to solve it.

Pairing Round 2 of DATCC Chess League

Here is the latest info that I received regarding the Second Round Pairing of DATCC Chess League

Table 1 : GOLD IS Bhd vs PriceWaterhouseCoopers
Table 2 : Tan & Tan vs 786 Chess Club
Table 3 : SMS Gold vs SPAWN 2009
Table 4 : DAT Chess Centre vs MBS KL
Table 5 : Nusa Mahkota Chess Club vs PCWM Terang Bersih

My personal thoughts :

It will be an interesting Match since IM Lim Yee Weng is rumour to be playing, so GOLD IS will field strongest line up! But I also heard IM Mas may not be playing in the second round. The upset that Hazril Husin made against Kamaludin Yusof will make his next game against IM Jimmy or Abdullah Che Hassan is a moment to watch!

Cant wait to find out who will play as board 3 & 4 of the Tan & Tan team, coz, rumours is said that 786 will field up players that were absent last wednesday.

The battle for table 3 is a match of friends! If SMS Gold wants a decisive match the strongest line up of FM Ooi and FM Mok will be of certain!

I have no comment of DATCC and MBS KL, but I think DATCC will win this one!

PCWM still have not yet decided who shall play against Nusa Mahkota. My bet will be Hairul will play in the second round! If I am next in the ladies line maybe I shall play against Hairul - battle of bloggers! (hehehe)
