Varien Thien - FM Mok Tze Meng
DATCC Team League (Round 7), 03.06.2009

White has just played 1.Rxg6. Look scary at first but Mok keeps his cool and win quite easily after ...

1...Nxg6 also win after 2.Bxg6 Rxe5+ 2.Kd1 i didn't know what Mok play from here but he won the game shortly. Obviously black should win easily after 2...Nxg6 3.Bxg6 fxg6 4.Qxg6+ Kd7 0-1

IM Giam Choo Kwee - (left) Tan & Tan, suffered a heavy defeat against Nor Ilhamuddin (right) Nusa Mahkota Chess Club . Probably the ice lemon tea drink is Ilham's secret weapon !?

This game was the last to finish. The position below is totally draw. Yee Weng only need to exchange white's h-pawn to ensure it.

1...Kf3 2.Nf6 Kg2 2...g3 3.hxg3 Kxg3 also draw 3.Nxg4 h5 4.Ne5 Kxh2 5.Ng6 ½–½

DATCC. If you noticed , there is a stapler bullet box near Andrew's left elbow .

I have the honour to play against our first National Champion - NM Choo Min Wang. He won the national title in 1974 - 2 years before i was born.

Hairul(ov) - NM Choo Min Wang [D02]
DATCC Team League (Round 7), 03.06.2009

I got a very slight ( or should i call it micro !?) advantage here due to black isolated c -pawn. However i was quite worried about black's active bishop on b7 and his queen who could give serious pressure along the a8-h1 diagonal. Especially checkmating attack on g2 !
17.Nf3 Qh5 18.Ne5 Qg5 19.Nf3 Qh5 19...Qf4 20.Qe5 Qxe5 21.Nxe5 with better chance for white. 20.Ne5 Qg5 21.Nf3 i could try for more with 21.g3 but i'm afraid black bishop will look more dangerous so i offer a draw which accepted by my great opponent ½–½
