2012 SKBJ Chess Selection

I am so tired today. Because it was a hectic weekend for me. On Saturday, my school had a chess selection. On Sunday, I took part in a rapid chess tournament where I had to play eight rounds of 20 minute per player.  I had to play against opponents much older than me. Oh no, less time for my computer games and no cycling activity on Sunday. hu hu hu ...

In the SKBJ chess selection, there were 28 players in the boys category. There were four of us who are in Year 4.

Why I was standing in front of class with seven others? No, no it was not a punishment as you might think. he he he ... Actually, all the eight of us are the Top 8 in the selection tournament where we played five rounds. We will be representing our school in the MSS chess championships this year.

My New SRA School

This year I am in Year 4. Starting 2012, my school session is different compared to the previous three years. My SK (Sekolah Kebangsaan) session will be in the morning while my SRA (Sekolah Rendah Agama) will be in the afternoon. My parent changed my SRA school from SRA TTDI Jaya to SRA Bukit Jelutong. It is much closer from home now. So, I am the only one in my family who have two SRA schools. Both my elder brother and sister had only one.

Ready for my class on Thursday, 5th January

Actually, SRA Bukit Jelutong (below picture) started to operate last year. So, this year will be its second year of establishment.

NJCC Update

I played in one chess tournament only last month. It is a classic chess tournament. A classic or also known as standard chess tournament has a time control of 90 minutes. The 4th NJCC that I only updated on the first day was the tournament that I took part. Let me continue the update.

How many points I got at the end? How many wins, draws or lose? 

I won two games, drew four and lost three. Below is the detail of my opponents and game results. Out of nine opponents, two of them are not FIDE rated like myself. Fortunately, the other seven are rated players. My dad is happy because I had played against many FIDE-rated opponents. I managed to win one and drew three scoring 2.5/7 points.

Below are several pictures of me playing against my opponents in the tournament taken by my dad.

Round 4 playing black against Arif (left), I drew with him

Round 6 winning over my schoolmate, Faqih (right)

I was very happy when drew with Kah Heng (left) in Round 7

And also drew against Danial Iskandar (right), my brother's chess buddy in Round 8

I was so tired on the third day that I decided to skip the sixth round. But luckily I kept playing and I won. I will take part on this coming Saturday in a chess tournament held in Seremban. I can't wait to have a commuter ride to Seremban as planned and told by my dad. Wish me luck in that tournament, okay!
