2nd The Summit Juniors Open: Under-14 Result

This group had 34 players led by Puteri Rifqah, Cheah Eason, Nithyalakshmi, Tan Yong Zhao and Dawson Tan with less than 100 rating points separating them.

Cheah and Rifqah were the first two casualties when they lost unexpectedly to 10th seeded Jaron and 11th seeded Zhi Wei respectively in Round 2. Next, comes Dawson who lost to Nithyalakshmi in Round 4 where the latter get to setup a mouth watering clash against Yong Zhao. However, the game didn't produce a result with Bishop opposite-color endgame.

In the last round, Yong Zhao had a much easier opponent than Nithyalakshmi but Yong Zhao had failed to convert the full point for a 3-way tie with Dawson and Nithyalakshmi. She was rewarded with much superior tie-break count to be declared as Champion.

2nd The Summit Juniors Open: Under-7 Result

There were 27 players who turn-up for the event but after playing for 3 rounds, this youngest field just left with 24 players. It's probably too much chess for the three kids who withdrew themselves from the event.

Pre-tournament overwhelming favourite, Amir Faiz Amirul, just swept the field with a perfect score. While, Iskandal Haikal and Asia Moo had swapped places to finish 2nd and 3rd respectively.
