During the recent National Close, we had an incident with a chess parent. I often see Cikgu Fuad at tournaments and have been very impressed by his daughter's chess. He is a quiet man and always smiling.
Malaysian Chess would have collapsed a long time ago but for the contribution of parents. First GM would like to offer him and his family our good wishes and we hope he has a fast recovery.
I am glad that a contribution box was passed around at the tournament. That shows that the community spirit is chess is still very much alive.
