14 September 2011, Kuala Lumpur – Some weeks back, I had heard rumors of someone going full time as a chess player and leaving a lucrative job with the hope of one day earning Malaysia a grandmaster title in chess. I wasn’t sure if this was true and until someone else could help confirm it. The Kuala Lumpur Open (now renamed DYTM Raja Dr Nazrin Shah Masters and International Open 2011) was on-going then.
Well, the fidetrainer blogger just confirmed the news yesterday of this event and you may visit his site here.
Go Mas, we are all rooting for you! Mas for GM!
