Lik Zang shines in Maribor!!!
Lye Lik Zang (Malaysia) emerged joint 4th at the World Youth Chess Championships that was held in Maribor, Slovenia. His campaign at the World Youth was impressive, winning six games, drawing four and losing a winning game. In the last round when it mattered most, Lik Zang told me that he was going for the win against the eventual winner of the tournament and the new Under-8 World Chess Champion. It was a hard fought draw though there were a few incidents during the game that had upset Lik's Zang's concentration. On tie-break, Lik Zang was place 7th in a field of 136 players from all over the world.
Congratulations Lye Lik Zang for playing good impressive chess. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at some of the positive remarks and words of encouragement that I have received for Lik Zang.
Earlier international successes include his 3rd place finishing in the under-7 Open category at the Asian Schools Championships in New Delhi, India in December 2011 and his emerging as the under-8 Champion at the 1st ASEAN International Youth Chess Championships in Singapore in August 2012.
With a pair of supportive parents, James Kwong pursued his dream of one day becoming a chess Master. Slovenia was a tough test for the young lad from Kowloon, Hong Kong. With just 3 months of preparations, very little relevant tournament practice but a lot of determination, James played at the World Youth Chess competition in Slovenia. Despite his falling sick midway into the event, James managed a respectable 5 points and can proudly boasts that he played 8 experienced FIDE rated opponents! James showed a lot of promise for future chess success.
Though James was the lone representative from Hong Kong, James was never really alone with his father playing the roles of father, mother, friend and doctor! True determination as he fought the cold weather as well as his fever to stay on course for the entire tournament.
Earlier this year, James had competed at the 1st ASEAN International Youth Chess Championships in Singapore. There he emerged 7th in the under-8 Open category.
