DATCC Round 15 Preview by Zack Zaheer

786 Chess Club vs Persatuan Catur Wanita Malaysia (PCWM)

3 cheers for wanita for putting up a creditable performance against spawn though they were white washed in the end . Rosalina Mormono was unlucky to lose an opposite colour bishop endgame. 786’s kamaluddin end game manouevre was intriguing against rusdi last week though overall 786 was lucky to come out with their pride intact. Wanita will probably raise their game against 786 but still not enough to win them anything

Likely score 4-0
Tan & Tan vs. Dato' Arthur Tan Chess Centre (DATCC)

Seniors Tan and Tan fired blanks last week against SMS Gold but against hosts DATCC they should win comfortably . Though DATCC put up a good show against pricewater house with a win for Dr paul and a draw for Tan Jun Feng ,Tan and Tan has enough firepower to pack the minnows home with nothing to show if IM Giam and NM Choo
can sit and play in a rare get together.

Likely score 4-0
Nusa Mahkota Chess Club (NMCC) vs. Pricewaterhouse Coopers
High flying Price water house’s ambitions for a 4TH placing was almost grounded when they only beat minnows DATCC with a wafer thin margin 2.5-1.5
nusa mahkota’s courageous and great fight back against 786 should give them the confidence needed to prise the armor of price waterhouse and leap frog over them

likely score 2.5-1.50
Methodist Boy School (MBS) vs SPAWN 2009
SPAWN 2009 has proven that their comeback is real and will show no mercy against enterprising MBS boys who were unlucky not to gain something after the 4th board failed to capitalize on material advantage going into end game against goldis . Jax and co may slaughter the boys for an amazing 8 points in 2 games to further strengthen their grip on the 4th position

Likely score 4-0

SMS gold vs Goldis
Although sms gold would like to prove the win over goldis is no fluke and may go into the battle with high hopes the earlier win may end up just like a flash in the pan. Lim Yee Weng will be eager to let his brain do the talking while IM Jimmy Liew may have some tricks up his sleeves to show pretender Mok Tze Meng who the real master is .
Abdullah and udani may play board 3 and 4 for a unchanged lineup for goldis whereas sms gold may have their perennial problem of whom to play on board 3.
Likely score 1-3
