Thanks to my friend - Zam who is actually not a chess player but send me   an info about Collin Madhavan attempt to break the Malaysian Book Of Records for " The Most Consecutive Chess Games Played". The event will be organised by SP Setia Berhad 
 The current record  is held by ex-World Police Champion - Ismail Ahmad who played against 120 players last March. It looks like  the record will only last for two months if Collin manage to break it by playing against 123 players  on 24th May 2009 at Setia Alam Welcome Centre , Shah Alam.
It must be a tough challenge for Collin physicaly as what Ismail have told me about his experienced,  so all the best Collin!
For anyone who interested to play, you can get the details and download the form at
