This year edition of Selangor Open (Royal Selangor) 2008 field quite a numbers of strong players including title players from neighboring countries such as the Indonesian and Philipines. It also being held at the Selangor Pewter main office . I've been there several times to order souvenier for VIP's but never play chess there. I think this is the first time Royal Selangor Pewter the main sponsor for Selangor Open for many times held the event at their office.
Players ready for 1st round .
