What happen to this year edition of Selangor Open? For the record, Chess Association of Selangor (CAS) will be celebrating the 39th anniversary of the Selangor Open if this event can be organised this year. As of last year, this oldest event was organised for 38 consecutive years and it would have been regarded as the impossible wish list of mad visionaries.
