 EVIZ Rating 

   Currently there is no National Chess Rating list in Malaysia and this is affecting  chess organisers, coaches and players. For tournaments that are not FIDE rated, chess organisers are unable to rank players in an unbiased manner. For players,  there is no yardstick to gauge their progress. 

    As such, the Cheras Chess Academy and a number of other local organisers will be using the new EVIZ Rating system to rate most of our rapid tournaments.

Harapan Chess Match

31 August 2018

 


   THE Cheras Chess Academy and Chess Master Academy raised RM8,125 for Tabung Harapan Malaysia by organising the Harapan Chess Match, a one-day chess match on National Day.  

  The chess match was launched by Klang MP Charles Santiago. He congratulated the chess community’s effort and hoped that the country would recover fully with the help of its people. Santiago added that the people should also start taking care of the environment, especially rivers.  

     “Children should be taught about clean rivers and the importance of water in our lives,” he said.

    At the fundraiser, chess master Collin Madhavan and three junior chess players played a simultaneous match against 85 participants at the International Youth Centre in Bandar Tun Razak, Cheras.

The match lasted over five hours.

 Understanding Openings and Endgames 2
(chess training for Intermediate level)

Beginners Holiday Chess Camp
(chess training for Beginners)

Organised by 
Cheras Chess Academy 
(Kuala Lumpur)  

  The August holidays Chess Camp attracted eighty plus participants. The 2-day chess training organised by Cheras Chess Academy was held at the International Youth Centre in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. Apart from the Beginners Holiday Chess Camp, the stronger players attended the training on further understanding in the Openings and the Endgames. 
   The Chess camp was headed by Fide Trainer & Candidate Master Collin Madhavan, who was ably assisted by Fide Instructor Olivia Madhavan, Fide National Instructor Ms Doris Wong, Fide Instructor Genkeswaran, Fide Instructor Kumaressan and a number of very capable chess instructors. The coaches are all very qualified, capable, children friendly, very responsive to the needs of the children and were very resourceful in finding new ways in teaching theory to the young minds.  
  All teaching material for the Chess Camp was carefully structured to increase the level of knowledge as well as interest in the game. All participants received their chess notes and certificate of participation. Apart from theory in the opening, middle-game and endgame, the camp also had special sparring sessions for all levels along with separate training tournaments for the different categories. Medals were given out based on their assessment scores and playing performance. 
  Here are some of the photos from the 2-day Chess Camp.
