2nd DATCC Team League Round 7 Report

2nd DATCC Team League Round 7 Report
(22nd December 2009)
Tan & Tan vs X- factor : 0.5-3.5

1. IM Lian Ann Tan (2238) vs FM Tze-Meng Mok (2389) : 0-1
2. Chan Mun Fye vs Kumar Sri Shiva 0 : 0.5-0.5
3. Dato' Tan Chin Nam vs Parimanan Paul : 0-1
4. Choo Min Wang vs Lim Zhao Ren : 0-1

The experience team try hard to avoid losing badly against X- factor. Their first board, the experienced Singaporean IM Tan Lian An play an excellent game against IM elect Mok Tze Meng. The 62 years old and six time Singapore National Champion was in total control but unfortunately he made a single but desicive mistake in the final phase of the game due to time trouble. I think Mok was rather fortunate to win the game. In other board, Can Mun Fye manage to save a (half) point for the veterans when he draw against Sri Shiva in board 2.

White to move

White is winning here. His main advantage is his passed b -pawn .1. b7 Re8 2. d6 Stronger is 2.Qa6! Kg7 3.Qb6 Re2+ 4.Kh1 Re1+ 5.Qg1 Re8 6.Qd4+ Kf7 7.Qb4 Rb8 8.Qb6 follow by 9.Qc7 and black's have to sac his rook to stop the b7 pawn from queening 2...Kg6 3. Kh3 h4 4. Qb3??
In severe time trouble white made a desicive mistake by letting black's rook to enter his 7th rank . White should have guard the e2 square by moving his queen to a6 or c4 4... Re2! Now white is losing. Black has set a brilliant mating nett on white's king and he is threatening the desicive Rh2++ checkmate. 5. Qg8+ Kf6 6. Qf8+ Ke5 7. Qg7+ Kd5 and white has to sac his queen to stop mate on h2 0-1

A lucky escape for Mok Tze Meng.

Nusa’s add two new player - Izz Saifuddin and Zaidan Zulkipli to strengthen the team. Izz played a good game on board 3 against NM Edward Lee. He maintain the initiative trough out the game. Edward blunder an exchange in the middle game and had to resign about ten moves later. Nusa's 4th board - Zaidan Zulkipli is having a semester break from his medicine study in Galway, Ireland. Caviaga won on board 1,2 and 4 but Nusa's team is quite happy to get a single point thanks to Izz surprise but highly deserved victory against NM Edward Lee.

Team AU vs 17 Chess Club: 3.5-0.5

1. FM Ooi Chern Ee (2357) vs Kamaluddin Yusof (2177) : 1-0
2. Ibrahim Mohd Irman (2155) vs Sahir Sarifdin : 0.5-0.5
3. Soon Wai Cheong (2057) vs Salleh Akmal : 1-0
4. Tan Ken Wei vs Ahayat Izuddin : 1-0



17 Chess Club manage to salvage a half points against the leader of the tournament- Team AU . Sahir who is playing white on board 2 manage to draw against Irman Ibrahim who play an unusual opening 1.e4 b6 !?. However AU almost lost a full point when their 4th board – Tan Ken Wei blunder a piece early in the opening but Ahayat somehow misplay his position move by move and Ken Wei produced a tremendous turnaround to actually win the game.

Pricewaterhouse Coopers vs DATCC : 2.5-1.5

1. Thian Loon Ong vs Jun Feng Tan (1801) : 1-0
2. Cheok Fung Cheah (1994) vs Haslindah Ruslan (1705) : 1-0
3. Frankie Lee vs Yat Guo Jie : 0.5-0.5
4. Yaw Chong Chew (2009) vs Justin Ong (2018) : 0-1



DATCC like Nusa’s add a new player – Justin Ong and the move proved a success when he beat Chew Yaw Chong on board 4. The DATCC 4th board Yat Guo Jie held Frankie Lee to a draw but the auditors manage to win by a small margin thanks to their top two board who collected the full points.

Eon Bank Berhad vs Stormwarriors : 2-2

3. Chin Kenneth Luoong Wee vs Prabha Rajendran : 0-1
4. Mohamad Radzi Ahmad Firdaus vs Tan Chee Hock : 1-0


EON tied the UM students team to a draw thanks to their 3rd board Prabha win against Keneth Luoong . The banker were a little unlucky that the score was not 2.5-1.5 in their favour because their 2nd board- Aziz Shukor was completely winning but somehow he couldn't convert his winning advantage into a full points .
