Local FIDE Rated Tournaments in 2008

Probably this news is quite late but still it's good to announced that the tournament report for the 2008 Sarawak Open which were held from 31 October - 3 November 2008 in Kuching, Sarawak has been officially received by FIDE.

The tournament was won by NM Kamal Abdullah or famously known (recently) as The Empire Strike Back (ESB) . For intensive report on this tournament refer gilocatur blog .

It seems that there's growing numbers of local FIDE rated tournaments which is a good sign for Malaysian chess. I hope the numbers will continue growing.

Below is local FIDE rated tournaments in Malaysia for 2008 :- (please inform me if i missed any)
