Penang heritage city international chess open tournament 2009 (Part 1)
I went down to the Dewan Sri Pinang yesterday evening to catch up with friends at the Penang heritage city international open chess tournament. Mas Hafizulhelmi was playing, Mok Tze Meng was playing, Lim Chuin Hoong was playing, Ismail Ahmad was playing and there was even a grandmaster from Germany in the field, Gerhard Schebler. And of course, Hamid Majid was there as the chief arbiter and Andrew Ooi was there to update all the action to his Gilachess blog.
