1500 !! That's the number we are looking at for the today's Festival Catur Putrajaya (FCP) 2017. It's definitely a record for the biggest number of participants in Malaysia ever. Of course the previous one was marred by bad organisation and controversies. From what I see in the initial first round, this is a very smoothly run Round 1 and the organisers are determined things finish on time at 5 pm!
