Last saturday (16 oct 2010) i'm joined UUM Chess Open. Total around 100 players taking part. I'm and ended7 (Aamaluddin) travel from Kulim to Jitra, before stop for resting in my hometown at Jitra ( Near Bukit Wang Reacreation park). Saturday morning we continue our journey to UUM at Sintok,Kedah- 30 minute drive from my kampung. The 1st game start around 9.30 a.m , after waiting for a few player. 1st round, I lost to Muhamad Husaini from Changlun, he pinned my rook with a bishop. After that , i maintain my performance and keep winning untill last round draw againt Khairul Hafiz, i'm in advantage with Queen +Rook+ 3 pawns again 2 rook + 1 Knight and 3 pawn. I'm just don't want to take a risk, because if winning I only can finish 4th, same prize with 6th place. Anthony Liong from Penang get the spotlight of the day, after trashing the 3's Azman Hisham daughter/son. Nabil cannot revenge his 2 younger sister defeat to Anthony Liong, after only manage to draw. Syatifulzamani also play superd chess game, by drawing with Nabil, and defeated Nur Nabila in final round. Defending champion, Syed Iskandar and Amri not playing their best game that day, after losing to Chin Kok Liang. Ended 7 also cannot maintain performance, due to tired ,dont get enough sleep. Congrat to all winner and for the other player, we can try again next year.
