Malaysian Chess Festival - 28th Astro Merdeka Standard Team Chess Championship 2008 - Day1

Day 1 Results

Pelikan is at the top of the table in the Open Category with 13 points after Round 4. ASTRO Malaysia is in second spot losing to the leader 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 but can always make a comeback tomorrow. The photo on the left showed Pelikan and Apocalypse Manila in Round 3, the result in favour of the Malaysian team at 3 -1. Likewise the leading State team Selangor collected 12 points so far, but the position remains fluid with other teams jostling close by. Competition is stiff with every point and strategy matters from now on

Selangor Generasi 8 representing Selangor is in the lead in the Juniors' Category with 14 1/2 points, or 1 1/2 points ahead of the team whom they will meet next.
