21 March 2017
Cheras Chess Academy
The Cheras Chess Academy organised the 2nd Cheras Easter Rating
Tournament during the school holidays in March 2017. The one day Swiss Rapid
event was played over 9 rounds at the International Youth Centre in Cheras, Kuala
Lumpur. The event which was fide rated, attracted a large number of enquiries.
Unfortunately due to space constraints, only 100 players were accepted for this
chess event. Though played in one open section, attractive prizes, that included
digital clocks, were awarded to 6 categories - Under-16 boys, Under-16 girls,
Under-12 boys, Under-12 girls, Under-9 boys and Under-9 girls.
Here are some of the photos that were taken
during the event.
