A few week ago my old friend Rosli Mohd Nor called me to help him organising his Temerloh Open.Well I said ok and he also asked me to bring the equipments.To be Temerloh is always exciting for me because I have many friends that I made in late eighties.Among strong Temerloh chess players are Rosli himself,ShukurMustaffa,UstazJamaluddin,Patahir Akhir,Shaharuddin Mohd Said and veteran Kurnaini Karim also known as Tengku Aspalani or Kasputra are among names that he used during tournamnet.
Temerloh "Chess Center" is located at Seberang Temerloh which is just located under the bridges that cross the Pahang river.At the center you can play chess almost 24 hours daily.Please made sure you pay a visit to the chess center.Dont forget to try the famous ikan patin there.
When I reached Temerloh and saw list of participants I found out that only 3 familiar players ,Ian Udani ,Kamaluddin Yusoff and Abdullah Che Hassan.In my mind Terengganu players should have an equal chances to finish among top winner.
For Norazmi Mohd Nor to finish as the champion will included in his long list of many tournament that he won in his playing career.Click here for cross table.
