Of Malaysian Chess Festival 2005

A blast from the past.

My friend Masrin Erowan emailed me the following photo which was taken in 2005 during the Malaysian Chess Festival. The photo was with the late Florencio Campomanes who was here as a guest to Dato Tan Chin Nam and the Malaysian Chess Federation (MCF).

I used to entertain Mr Compomanes with late night blitz game and he was still good at chess despite his age. We would sit in the lounge area at CitiTel Hotel and play endless blitz chess until wee hours of the morning.
