Cheras Chess Academy
(Kuala Lumpur)  

     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.
