This morning i received a sad news that Mashafizul Helmi father - Mr.Abdul Rahman Halim has passed away last night in Kota Bharu. As many local chess fans have already know, Mr.Abdul Rahman was diagnosed with lever cancer .
Mr.Abdul Rahman is the most important man behind Mashafizul succes in chess, academic and career . I still remember when Mas is still a kid , his father always bring him to tournaments all over the country to develop his son great talents.
It's a sad day for Malaysian Chess. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Al-Fatihah.
