Actually this post is about a new chess blog titled The Chess Connections who made it maiden appearance in blog world last Tuesday.
|Najib (Standing in the center) in his element.|
The author of the blog is Najib Abdul Wahab. He is not a 'kid' in local chess community. He is an experienced chess event organizer, arbiter and chess player. He now runs the famous Dato Athur Tan Chess Centre (DATCC) in Kuala Lumpur.
About 20 years back which is when I start following local chess development, I noticed that Najib is already there. If I'm not mistaken, in 1995 he and a few chess enthusiast produce the first local chess magazine called - Majalah Catur. Najib writes a couple of articles in the magazine.
Comparing my gray hairs with Najib, I can safely estimated that he has involved in local chess development for at least 30 years although Najib can claimed that he has a slightly younger wife then me :)
So far he has post three articles in his blog and two is about the selection process. I highly recommend his blog to chess lovers especially local chess community.
