Congratulations to 
Pahang Chess Association 
 

   Persatuan Catur Negeri Pahang organised the Fide Arbiters' Seminar from 
21 to 23 October 2019 in the town of Rompin, Pahang, Malaysia. This seminar was 
co-organised by the Malaysian Chess Federation under auspices of the 
World Chess Federation (FIDE). Mr KK Chan IA FT IO was lecturer and he was 
assisted by Mr Collin Madhavan IA FT CM. A total of 30 participants sat for the 
FA exams while three Fide Arbiters (FA) attended the seminar as part of a refresher 
course for their personal development. At the official closing ceremony, the President
of the Pahang Chess Association, Puan Hamidah Abdul Hamid, said that the 
association planned to raise the number of Pahang's National and Fide Arbiters
and at the same time help Malaysia have a bigger group of qualified and competent
Fide arbiters. The guest of honour was Dato Sri Muhammad Safian bin Ismail.


Participants eagerly crowding around Lecturer KK Chan to look at how 
they faired in their online objective tests.

 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.

    Stella Maris Yayasan Chow Kit Chess Match
Organised by 
Stella Maris School & Cheras  Chess Academy

(Kuala Lumpur)

The Stella Maris Yayasan Chow Kit Chess Match

   The Stella Maris School Medan Damansara and Cheras Chess Academy raised RM10,000 for Yayasan Chow Kit  by organising the Stella Maris Yayasan Chow Kit Charity Chess Match, on Sunday the 29 September 2019.  

 The chess match was officiated and launched by the right Honourable YB Tuan Gobind Singh Deo, Malaysia's Minister of Communications and Multimedia.

 The minister applauded the effort of the organisers and the chess community for coming together and raising much needed funds for the less fortunate. He also hoped that more people will follow this good example and help alleviate the problems of the less privileged especially the children.

 At the fundraiser, chess master Collin Madhavan and eight junior chess champions played a Simultaneous Chess match against 88 participants at the premises of Stella Maris School Medan Damansara, Kuala Lumpur. The participants consisted of students from the school and members of the public.

 The match lasted over four hours.
