Fadzil Nayan makes the Olympiad squad.
I read on Facebook that Fadzil has made the Team. If that is true then I would like to congratulate him. This is important for Malaysian chess. Why? Because Fadzil fought his way into the Team without outside support. Purely on merit. And this is deserving of the highest respect. His victory is a victory for chess.
There are still other issues that MCF has not tackled and I hope that it will be looked into as well.
1. Why was Nicholas Chan bypassed and Li Tian put in?
2. There was also the issue of chess engine usage during National Close. Will this be investigated to prevent future abuse of selection?
3. What about tag team playing where players pass each other points? Is there a way to stop this?
4. Will the people responsible for the abuse be held accountable? Players and Officials.
If those things are looked into as well, then Malaysian chess will soar and we will hammer the rest of Asean. For we have the talent and we have the resources.
But first we must deal with the people who do not dare to compete and rely on the back doors. For in reality they are not real chess players and we will lose nothing by losing them.
ps: If you want to read more about this from the king of fixing himself then go here for his twisting and turning.
