As a build up for the 2009 Commonwealth Chess Championship which will be held in Kuala Lumpur this July, i will try to share some info about the past Commonwealth Chess Championship held in Kuala Lumpur in the early 90's. Unfortunately there's no ( so far) valuable info about the tournament in the Internet. According to Mr. Muhammad Arshad, the tournament was held in Bangi in 1991 but i think the tournament was held in 1992 because in my chess database, there's several games between local and international chess players held in 1992 at Kuala Lumpur. I would like to ask anyone who know or better still who participate or involve in organizing the tournament to share the details.
Below are one of a game held in Kuala Lumpur in 1992 which i found from one of my chess book. The game is between local player Azhari Mohd Noor and British player - Susan Arkell who is now better known as Susan Lalic ( She married with Bogdan Lalic ) .
