“Bangi Night Fever”
Last two night(29 Mei 2006), 7 chess players gather at Projet Pump Station , Seksyen 3, Bandar Baru Bangi for a double round robin blitz tournaments. This was the first step towards another “indie” chess tournament. The tournament start at about 11.00 p.m and finish about 2 a.m (p/s: you better have good excuses to tell your wife before you go home)
Mohd Saprin Sabri the top seed, Shamsul Bahrin -Puncak Alam Chess Club (PACC) Presiden, Shamsuddin Mat Isa, Hafishelmi, Zul, Izwan and your’s truly battle their minds in the heat of the night. The final result is Shamsul Bahrin -Puncak Alam Chess Club (PACC) Presiden emerge as the undisputed winner with 9 ½ points. 2nd runner-up goes to Mohd Saprin Sabri and Zul with 6 ½ . Third placing goes to Shamsuddin Mat Isa with 5 ½ point followed by Hafishelmi with 5 points. Your’s truly and Izwan “shared” 6th and 7th place (equivalent with last place!!!) with 4 points.
This double round robin tournament is another version of “night fever” that have been held successfully at Jayanti Restaurant, Shah Alam. (see my previous post about “Saturday Night Fever or”). The Friday night fever being held every Friday night because it give the players to spend their weekends with their family or playing in tournaments. But for the “Bangi Night Fever”, we “still” finding the justification to held a double round robin tournament late at night and the next day is a working day. But anyway, I believe that “if you are born as a chess player , you will always be a chess player”. For anybody who interested to play in this tournament, I will inform it as soon as I get confirmation by the organizer Mr. Shamsul Bahrin -Puncak Alam Chess Club (PACC) Presiden, so keep in touch!!!
Note: I forgot to bring my digital camera on that night. I have problem to transfer the Bangi Night Fever picture i take with my NOKIA mobile phone to the computer .
