Majority of local and international chess fan including me is focusing on the World Chess Championship 2008 - Anand vs Kramnik in Bonn, Germany from 14th October to 2nd November 2008. However there’s another important chess events especially for local fans - The 2008 World Youth ChessChampionship held in Vung Tau, Vietnam from 19th -31st October 2008 .

Thanks to our man in the spot- Mr.Andrew Ooi who is “going international” for his chess coverage, we can enjoy the recent updates about local players performances, the photos and stories. Actually during the MCF GM Tournament a couple of months ago , Peter Long did ask me to send my resume if I'm interested to help him at Vung Tau but unfortunately because of my busy work schedule, I can’t afford to leave my work for two weeks. Probably next time if god willing..and pleassse god !
