 EVIZ Rating 

   Currently there is no National Chess Rating list in Malaysia and this is affecting  chess organisers, coaches and players. For tournaments that are not FIDE rated, chess organisers are unable to rank players in an unbiased manner. For players,  there is no yardstick to gauge their progress. 

    As such, the Cheras Chess Academy and a number of other local organisers will be using the new EVIZ Rating system to rate most of our rapid tournaments.

24th Kids for Chess Camp
Organised by Cheras Chess Academy 
(Kuala Lumpur) 
27 to 28   November

   The 24th Kids for Chess Camp 2018 took place on 27 & 28 November at the International Youth Centre in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. Eighty plus participants took part in this popular Chess camp which was organised by the Cheras Chess Academy. 
   The Chess camp was headed by Fide Trainer & Candidate Master Collin Madhavan who was capably assisted by Fide Instructor Olivia Madhavan, Fide National Instructor Ms Doris Wong, Fide Instructor Genkeswaran, Fide Instructor Kumaressan and a number of very capable chess instructors. The coaches are all very qualified, capable, children friendly, very responsive to the needs of the children and were very resourceful in finding new ways in teaching theory to the young minds.  
    All teaching material for the Chess Camp were carefully structured to increase the level of knowledge as well as interest in the game. 
       The Camp had 5 levels of Chess (based on playing strength & theory). All participants received their chess notes and certificate of participation. Apart from theory in the opening, middle-game and endgame, the camp also had special sparring sessions for all levels along with 9 separate training tournaments for the different categories. Medals were given out based on their assessment scores and playing performance. 
  Here are some of the photos that were taken at the Kids for Chess Camp.
