Hairul,Hairulov - Nur Nabila Azman Hisham [B07]
Royal Selangor 2006 Round 7
This is one of my game against a very talented player Nur Nabila Azman Hisham (firecracker-as Gilachess called him). I managed to beat her but I predict in a very few years she will start demolish me if we meet againt. This based on my experience playing against Siti Zulaikha (our National Woman Master). I managed to beat her when she is still a little kid. She is too short to reach the pieces then but after a few years this girl (woman) trash me two times. So the morale of the story is beat them when they are still young!
