KLCA to participate in the 8th Asian Dragons International Chess Tournament 2014

The Kuala Lumpur Chess Association will be sending a team to participate in the invitational 8th Asian Dragons International Chess Tournament 2014.

A long time developmental event eagerly looked forward to each year by players from Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong and South Korea, there are two sections, Open and U-16, but players have to be rated under 2200. 

Traditionally Singapore is the only other country invited to join the four above and its representatives often win the bulk of prizes available.

Held in Taipei from 12-19 July 2014, and played over 9 rounds using the Swiss System with a time control of 90 minutes plus a 30 second increment from move one, this FIDE rated event is a wonderful opportunity to KLCA juniors to gain valuable exposure.

Members interested are to contact Peter Long immediately as limited places are available and will be on a first come first served basis.
