27 June 2010, Kuala Lumpur – Here are the top 25 winners of the 3rd Leg of the Stonemaster Amateur Special Edition held at DATCC, Wilayah Complex, Kuala Lumpur. There were 87 participants who participated. The number of participants were a bit disappointing as usually there are more than 100 players for the Amateur chess tournament held by Stonemaster.
The winner of the third leg is Mohd Rezal Che Man with 6.5 points from 7 rounds. Congratulations to all winners and players alike. You may read more of the results at gilachess.com or stonemaster.info. Usually, the latest pictures from stonemaster will be published either tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, so wait for it.

Last 25 May 2010, I had blog on this webpage a news article about Alexandra Kosteniuk’s High Altitude Chess in Peru that appeared in a Malaysian newspaper. I repost the blog here again. 25 May 2010- In today's paper The Sun, there is a front page news on chess in Peru where Alexandra Kosteniuk of Russia won the '2010 Machu Pichu Challenge'. She played against the Under-16 Girl's World Champion from Peru in the finals. As you can see from the picture, the background is very picturesque and mountainous, typical of Peru.
However I wish to show you a game of the chess game played during that chess challenge between Alexandra, chess queen against Deysi Cori, Peru, the chess teen, taken off The Chessblog.com created by Alexandra herself. Please enjoy the chess game annotated by Alexandra Kosteniuk.
