National rating just came out.From the list I can see 6829 chess players are at least rated.Probably more then 5 events are not rated officially.To calculate all this is time consuming ( I simply will give up if they ask me to do this) and good in math.Although 6829 are rated I believed several thousand players should be rated ,I say maybe another 5000 should be rated.Out that total figure I believed 2000 is die hard chess players.But it is very hard to find an exact number of chess population in this country.Base on the national rating Ruzenan abu Bakar is the top player and second is Abdul Rahim Ramli.Both are not FIDE rated players but need 4 rated games to be officially rated.Mohd Khairul Nazrin is the highest rating increment by making 259 points due to his participants in various rated event in the country for the past 3 months.
