UMP ladies in round 3 vs UDM ladies. They could have won by at least 3-1. But somehow, the mistake of illegal move on board 3 was claimed after the clock was press on the opponent side. The arbiter cikgu Suhairi ruled that my girl lost the game. Ok la.. so far the score was 2-1 in favour of UDM. I am waiting patiently for the board 2 to finished the game. And in the time trouble, my girl made an illegal move and so does her opponent. At the timing of 1 seconds to finish, the opponent made the claim. I was there, fighting hard for my girl, coz i knew at her condition she is blurr at that point where the opponent illegally capture her queen. UMP won the illegal move battle. To me it is a fair and square fight, since one battle on illegal move claimed was lost by us.
In the Round 4 of the Men's team - UMP lost to UPSI. I wonder why? as if it seems that they havent play chess before. They got a really "big" lecture from me and Zarul last night, hoping that today they wont make the same mistakes. UMP will be playing against a weaker team from UMK who only gained 1 point so far. I dont mind them losing their games as long as they play the best. But the best is not by losing to a simple trick of checkmate or worst giving piece for free. And the "best" thing is - it is not a 50 marks puzzle!
Today, in round 4 UMP ladies will play against UUM. To get the bronze medal, they have to thrash UUM by at least 3-1. But i think all hope dash coz juz now, when i left the hall and wrote this the ladies were playing badly. The guys looks like they going to win, but the play is so terrible!
