WORLD CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP

The much awaiting match between title holder Anand (38) and Kramnik (32)will start at 15.00 in Bonn Germany.They will play 12 games and will share prize money US 2.35 million which is much more then Kasparov and Karpov era.They will play in classical time control ,120 minutes for the first 40 move and 60 minute for the next 20 move ,and 15 minute for the rest of the game plus additional 30 second from move 61.Both players are very familiar with host country, Anand play for Baden Baden in Bundesliga.


In press conference held yesterday Anand says he have been training on and off since April this year for the championship and very eager to defend the title.For this championship Anand will have 4 seconds to assist him S.S Ganguly , Nielsen (Denmark) , Kasimzhanoz and young Polish grandmaster Radoslaw. When asked about the Polish Grandmaster Anand says he met Radoslaw in Bundesliga ,according to Anand they play few time and Radoslaw made positive impression on him technically.

Meanwhile Kramnik will have 3 seconds Peter Leko , Rublevskyi and Fressinet (France).For the record Leko was Anand second in match with Karpov and surely this help Kramnik for this championship.Kramnik has never won classical time control game with blacks pieces against Anand.

ANSWER TO MY QUIZ

kenapa tak percaya ?

(picture taken 2003 during BPM allegro your truly vs GM Sermek)


Well as I expected nobody can provided the correct answers to all of my question.I guess you have to be part of it to know the answer or asking to ex commitee members of Terengganu Chess Association.I posted two question :


1.Please give name of 3 grandmaster who visited Terengganu in the last 28 years ?


The answer is Raymond Keene came to Kuala Terengganu in 1980 to give simul.I think up to 20 Terengganu players took part in that event which been played at Kompleks Belia dan Sukan Jalan Pasir Panjang.GM Raymond won 19 game and drew 1 game.Then in 1991 after Commonwealth Chess Championship Peter Long came with Julian Hodgson and the later give simul to 11 Terengganu players and won 10 game and drew 1 game with Hashim Jusoh.Lastly Drazen Sermek came in 2003 to take part in BPM chess allegro and easily won the Terengganu leg.Your truly managed to get a draw with him.I think that answer all of my questions that I posted earlier.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

1988 Terengganu Open winner late Cikgu Mustaffa Mohd
Wan Zunida Wan Mohd Nor received prize from
Mohd Azemi Awang Chik of MSN.Recently she called
me and still eager to play.Now married with 3 kids.

Do you recognise the small boy here ?


Can you name the 3 players who is still around today?

1993 Terengganu Open Champion Ghalam Sani Dato Abd Rashid
of Terengganu (many times winner of open as well as the state
champion now retire from chess scene.)


I have been involved in chess activity in Terengganu since late 1980 either as a player or organiser,maybe some of you not even born yet.During that time we have up to four tournament per year and that including the Terengganu open which we normally organise in month of August.The first Terengganu open was held in 1988 at Pantai Batu Burok coinside with Pesta Pantai and they are three categories contested.The open section was won by Mustaffa Mohd and Lim Sin Leong won the novice section ,regretfuly I dont remember whose is the winner for under 12 section.In fact I lost all the records of most of our tournament held in Terengganu.But I managed to salvage some of the evidance of chess activities in form of pictures.Those picture are all taken during 1993 Terengganu Open which was held in front of ex Terengganu State Library at Jalan Sultan Ismail.

PENCARIAN JAGUH CATUR CONTINUES

Pencarian Jaguh Catur Terengganu will continue on 22nd to 23rd August 2008.As usual the tournament will be divided into 3 category open, under 18 and under 12.In the last two series Hashim and Norazmi were champion.This two players are the dominance players in Terengganu chess scenario for the last 10 years.Others players may find difficult to break in unless unexpected results happened.But chances for other players to finished in top five are there if they working hard to improve.
In under 18 section mostly top five winners are dominated by Terengganu representative in MSSM.Seems that gap between state junior players with non state players are wide.The state junior players performance in recent MSSM is very humble ,( except for few players) this what I always believed for long time juniors state players (under 18) only be allowed to play in open section.Without this kind of exposure they will improve.So let non state players play with each other in this section.
Next week will see wheater Md Huzaimi ( I think this boy should play in under 18) could recover from loses to Siti Aisyah in under 12 section.The fast improving Siti Aisyah and her sister Siti Khadijah are catching up with Huzaimi who dominated under 12 section for few years already.Huzaimi is not making any significant progress for the last one year.
Now Pusat Minda Terengganu under leaderships of Dato Saidi and Dr Wan Shaari is planning to have weekly coaching lesson for the selected players.Hopefully this moves will benefits the junior players.Lastly , guys get ready for third series on 22-23rd August , see you all there.
