The Tournament

This will be the last serie of the SSC GP where only the top 5 players in each serie will be allowed to participate. Among players in this year Grand Finale edition will be our Malaysia's No 1 IM Mas Hafizulhilmi and a newly crowned Asia Amateur's champion Ahmad Fadzil Nayan. I presume it will not be an easy ride for all the players in becoming the 1st winner of the SSC GP Finale. Besides all the finalist PCDK and SCC have also selected 9 junior players to compete against their seniors. Hopefully they will gain some experience competing in this tournament and why not becoming one of the prize winner. Perhaps the organizer would like to see more players in 2012 series and hopefully it will be a yearly event that we all have been waiting for.

Finale will be held one day on 24 December 2011 at Setia Chess Centre Jalan Lim Hoe Lek Kuantan. First round will begin at 9 am and the prize giving ceremony is estimated to start around 6.45 pm. The time control will be 20 minutes plus 10 second for each move. It's great to know that the organizer will provide breakfast, lunch and tea to the Finale participants. The winner for this year Finale will bring home RM1,000 in cash. Chief Arbiter for this year Kuatan Rapid Grand Finale is En Najib Wahab (candidate FIDE Arbiter).

Stay tune with us for more updates.
