Recently i found that Ian Udani is winning local tournament after tournament. This remind me of the late Agus Salim - a Indonesian who is a Malaysian permanent resident. Agus dominated local chess scence during the 80's and 90's. Agus did the same as what Ian is doing - winning tournament after tournament ( especially local rapid tournament) .
However, sometimes local player manage to beat as what Azhari Md Noor ( a strong retired local chess player) did 15 years ago.
Agus Salim - Azhari Md Noor [B33]
Kejohanan Terbuka Bestari 1993 (Rapid) (5), 1993
