Pride goes before a fall

Ha. Thought I could finish top 10 in the CAS merdeka tourney. All the strong chess kaki's went to Ipoh for the UTP tourney. By the way, FM / NM Nicholas Chan won the Ipoh event (SMS info from Ching Kim Lye). Looked at the name list and counted only 7 names that I knew. So I thought heck, top 10 is in the bag for me. (shows how much I can tell from just looking at the name list) Of course, I got punished and didn't even get close to finishing top 10. Only finished with 3.5 points out of 6. Very dismal performance. Anyway, congratulations to the champ Cheah Eu Gene who practically is a well known name as he hold the record for being champion the most no. of times in Sunway College (or Monash University as it is now known). He modestly said he was lucky as he did not have to meet Norazman - his nemesis. Norazman incidentally lost to Izz who incidentally was Norazman's nemesis having defeated him twice before. (-2=1) 2nd of course is FM Anas who I met in the first round and gave him a scare by being up a pawn in the end game(2 rooks vs 2 rooks). But being the patzer I walk into a self mate :). Incidentally, this is the first time ever I've played Anas. I'm not too disappointed. At least I raised my national rating to about 1600+ from 1500+. Now I can call my self a Strong Patzer . To be fair the top 10 players were pretty strong but I am sure it won't be as strong if this event didn't clash with the Ipoh tourney. Category One
