17th Kepong Juniors Chess Tournament Snapshot

As indicated in my earlier post, the Under-8 title goes to top seed Muhd Faqih Aminuddin with a clean win for 7 rounds in-a-row.

While, top seed Ng Jen Sheng too emulates Faqih's achivement with 7 wins in-a-row to win the Under-10 title.

Next, Nithyalakshmi Sivanesan who is also the No. 1 seed in the Under-12 category won the event by winning 5 games in-a-row followed by 2 consecutive draws to clinch the title.

Lastly, the Under-16 category which is also dubbed as the "Group of Death" category is captured by Tan Wei Hao after a neck to neck battle with his childhood nemesis Tan Ri Hong. Both players studied together in the same school i.e. SJK(C) Kepong 2 during the primary years.

The detailed result will be posted in a day or two .........
