DATCC Round 17 Preview by Zack Zaheer!

DATCC vs Goldis

Considering the fact that even a half a point loss to DATCC is a big letdown, Goldis may have to field theirs strongest team against them (minus Yee Weng who make take time off to prepare for his Malaysian Masters Quarterfinals against Edward Lee this saturday). Nik Faruqi may finally see action after a few weeks in hibernation .

Probable score 0-4


PCW has all the reasons to win 4 nil as that can help widen the gap between them and the next 2 teams Nusa and Spawn. PCW- Cheong was in mermerizing form as he beat Haslinda with a rook sacrifice and will be inspiring his team to win big.

Probable score 4-0

Spawn vs 786 Chess Club

A tough match for Spawn . The fact that 786 can afford to lose 4nil the last 2 games cannot be a source of comfort for Spawn. 786's Kamaluddin who missed last week's game and Kamarul Ariffin who received a walkover are eager to play. Still Spawn with the right team might be able to pull it off.

Probable score 3-1

Tan and Tan vs PCWanita

Tan and Tan are always relaibel as they proved in their draw against Nusa. Wanita's commitment to the game is no longer in question as rather than give a walkover they have recruited 2 new players. If Nabila, Najiha, Li Tian - correction : it should be Tan Li Ting and Camilia play then indeed it will be a case of junior vs senior.

Probable score 3-1

SMS Gold vs Nusa Mahkota Chess Club

Nusa's dream of finishing 4th in the final listings took a beating as Irwan and Aziz were
outsmarted last week. To add salt to the wound they have to face the leaders SMS Gold this week but a never say die attitude and good preparations may make them a tough nut to crack
.With Hashim back in board 4 and Shamsul in top form, they might be able to steal a point .

Probable score 3-1
