Muhd Izz Saifudin Crowned Champion Of First Saturday Classical Chess 2009

Muhd Izz Saifuddin draws his last game and wins the First Saturday Classical Chess December 2009 over 23 other challengers for this six round Swiss system Classical Chess held over 5-6 December 2009 at the Excel Chess Academy, Kuala Lumpur. In second place is Abdullah Che Hassan, followed by Yeap Eng Chiam and Low Jun Jian, all with 4.5 points.

Abdullah simply could not win the last game when it mattered and the young talented Muhd Izz Saifuddin seized the oppportunity as black and crowned as Champion of the First Saturday Classical Chess December 2009.

Even Muhd Nabil, Jax Tham and the Azman Hisham’s siblings, Nur Nabila and Nur Najiha are all left wondering what happened to their own fortunes, simply out-gunned and out-maneuvred by Muhd Izz Saifuddin.

Fantastic, close and exciting finish to the six round Classical Chess organised by Excel Chess Academy. Next stop for the juniors are the National Juniors Championship from 16-20th December 2009 at Cochrane, Kuala Lumpur. If this Classical Chess tournament is a mirror of what is to come, I am sure chess fans and enthusiasts have plenty of action and slug-fest waiting for them, then!

Congratulations to all winners, participating players for the wonderful competition to this Classical Chess series and, of course, to the organiser, arbiter and player of the event, Jax Tham, owner of Excel Chess Academy! Well done!
