My team (Nusa Mahkota Chess Club)  meet Methodist Boy Schools (MBS)  , Kuala Lumpur . We win in all board. Before the game start, i jokingly provoke  my 3rd board player Rusdi Sidi who is ex MBS student ( long time ago !) to  prove that he "should" have play for the school team when he was MBS student 50kg ago by winning today's game . Below is how he response :-

DATCC League, Round 3, 6.5.2009

Black is clearly winning. He's a piece up. White last move is 1.Nd5 and guess what is  Rusdi reply? 

1...hxg3!! Sacrificing a queen for mate ! 2.Nxf6+ the knight take the queen with check ! 2...Nxf6 and white can't stop from being checkmate. For e.g  3. Be3 gxh2 ++  0-1 

Playing For Tan & Tan  Team - Dato' Tan Chin Nam - Never Say I Assume !

Board 3

Black to move

Black is up on material and according to Fritz, black can win by pushing her queenside pawns with 1...c3 and later b4 . I don't know what Najiha reply however she should avoid the  trap
 1... Bxe4?? 2. Bxe4 Rxe4 3. Rxe4 Rxe4 4. d7  black can't stop the pawn from queening with 4...Rd4 because simply 5.Nxd4
