21 August 2012, Kuala Lumpur - Today is the second day of rapid plays with 88 tables on active play and 176 players participating in this year's Arthur Tan Chess Festival 2012.
It is also the third day of Eid Fitri celebrations for Muslims who have just completed a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset.
