Finally the announcement is out. Here.
This is the tournament to win if you want to claim to be the strongest Malaysian Junior for the year. That claim comes from the board, not my fat number is bigger than yours. If fat numbers mean you can play strong chess then the guy with the biggest fat number can just write in and claim the title based on his fat number alone. This is how Jimmy and his cronies have tried to con the entire Malaysian chess community so that he and his side kicks can find a way to slip into the Malaysian squad without having to play at all? And he has spent years developing how and where to get fat numbers instead of developing his chess. Wrong placement of energy kup chai.
All my best to those going. Fight hard but fight clean.
