SJK(C) Kepong 2 Continues To Dominate KL Chess Scene

In the recently concluded MSSMKL Inter-School Team Competition, SJK(C) Kepong 2 continues her domination in the Primary School Category when both the Boys and Girls won their respective category.

In the Boys' Section, the school did not field their two national-class chess players namely Lim Chin Shen (MSSM Team Gold Medalist) and Tan Wei Hao (National U-10 Champion) in the team event, instead the school had open the door to some back-up squad players to have a chance taking part in the team event. This new team has done relatively well by capturing the title with 15.5 points from 20 games played. In this event, SJK(C) Jinjang Selatan had finished 2nd ahead of Sri Cempaka on tie-break count. Both teams had finished with 14 points. There were 20 schools took part in this 1-day event.

Meanwhile, SJK(C) Kepong Girls had dominated the Girls' Section when they amassed with 16.5 points followed by Sri Garden at a distant 2nd with 12.5 points, and SK Convent Bukit Nanas in 3rd with 12 points. There were 16 schools took part in this 1-day event.

So far, SJK(C) Kepong 2 being the One and Only Primary School in KL that Coach Lim has extended his services. Beginning 2008, Coach Lim would like to expand his contribution to other primary schools in KL by introducing the "know how" secret in chess that is used in the Chess Training Excellence Programme aka CTEP.
