Bercham Open - Results


The Winners. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!




Persatuan Kebudayaan India Bercham Open brought another chess event to Ipoh. The tournament portion was conducted with PICA volunteers. Old hand, Yunus, with two newbies, Khatib and myself managed to run the event with minimal hiccups.

After this first tournament the organisers want to make it a yearly affair. We only had 34 participants in all but the Limau Bali boys came in full force to support. The Subramaniams from Cameron Highland also came to support. My sincere thanks to them.

Many of the bystanders commented that they would have joined if they had known about it. Officials from other organisations who were present commented that they too will back future projects in chess and made many suggestions on how they can help in the future. One more small step.

Here are the winners.
