Late in publish this.. Juz found out about this on last friday.. the format of MWM 2010 has been changed. Instead of having a 8 players round robin event, the format has now changed to the 16 players and a knock-out round! The organiser would want to the event similar to world chess championship knock-out round... Probably the search for top 4 to Siberia 2010 will be done thoroughly from this system (probably)..
Anyway as the players will be selected based on MCF tournaments which are :
1. Top 4 finishers from the National Closed Women Chess Championship 2009
2. Top 2 finishers from the National Junior Chess Championship 2009
And players from the FIDE list and the MCF National Rating :
3. Top 4 players from the top 20 Women Players in Malaysia based on FIDE Rating list (going down the list in a sequential order)
4. Top 4 players from the top 20 Women Players in Malaysia based on the National Rating list (going down the list in a sequential order)
Also players selected as the MCF President's choice :
2 Players nominated by MCF President and approved by the council
I wonder who the top 16 players would be, but I bet the top 4 from the National Closed event NWM Tan Li Ting, Renitha, NWM Alia, and Winnie Hong - most definitely will take part. Also I think the players from top 2 from the recent National Juniors (W) 2009 - WFM Nur Najiha and Amira Syamina - will take part too. Perhaps the rest (players), will be decided later once the selected players received and and accepted the offer made by the MCF.
All the best to players!
