I expect Hashim would win this last round of Pencarian event and being surmised as the best Trg Chess Player. It will be approriate and meaningful if Pusat Minda can provide a special throphy for the champion, as to be at top for this marathon event is unlikely an easy way.

I found this analogy from LFC website written by Phil Tomkins, it's an interesting to read... "So in essence, Football is like chess played on a dinghy in the middle of a perfect storm. It often mirrors the strategy and cognitive thought processes of chess, with ‘pieces' organised within a four-sided arena, but football is played in such an unpredictable and unforgiving environment. So it's more like Kasparov and Karpov trying to outmanoeuvre each other with their knights and rooks and kings, whilst simultaneously attempting to hold on to the violently undulating boat with one hand and with the other stop his opponent trying to throw him overboard."
