       With the help of TheSun newspapers, Mercy Malaysia, friends and the chess community, the Cheras Chess Academy and Kids for Chess Program managed to raise RM5,770 in donations for victims of the recent Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines. '


My good friends, Goh Ah Kow (left) and Tan Lip Heong.

       The Haiyan Relief Chess Match was a simultaneous chess match where 5 students and Master Collin played more than 70 consecutive chess games against donors and their nominees at the International Youth Centre in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. The match lasted 3 hours.
