Missed A Winning Chance

25th April 2012, Kuala Selangor.

Today is the first day of MSS Selangor chess championship held at Kuala Selangor Indoor Stadium. I represented PPD Petaling Perdana in Boys Under 12 (L12) category.

In Round 3, I missed a winning chance when playing against my opponent who represented PPD Klang.

black to move after 40. Qf7
I was so confident that I could win the game. Unfortunately, I was checkmated after .. Rc1+ 41.Kh2 Qh1+ 42.Kg3 Rg1+ 43.Kf4 Qxh3??

I did not see the checkmate and giving my opponent the tempo. Can you see the checkmate? OMG, I blew a winning opportunity! I cried after the game.

4th IIUM Invitational Open (Under 12)

About two weeks ago, I took part in the 4th IIUM Invitational Chess Open in the Under 12 category. My elder brother and sister took part too in their respective category, Under 21. My dad wanted to participate too but he could not because he had a PIBG meeting to attend to.

Me and my mom before the tournament
The tournament was held in two days. I played four games of 45 minute per player in the first day and the other four in the second day.

In the last two rounds, I played against the two Puteri sisters - Munajjah and Rifqah. Both of them are Selangor MSSM chess players. I would like to follow their suit to represent my beloved state, Selangor, in the MSSM chess competition.
