After much guessing on the venue for the National Junior 2012, and after some "changes" in the renovation date for DATCC, the 5th National Junior Chess Championship 2012 is now confirmed for 18th December to 22nd December 2012 at DATCC (Dato Arthur Tan Chess Centre) located on the 4th Floor of Wilayah Complex Kuala Lumpur. This will probably be the last event held at DATCC before it is scheduled for a 2 week renovation work to make way for a new appearance for the center.
The National Junior event is Open only to Malaysian Citizens below the age of 20 years old (born on or after 1992). Entry fees is set at RM60 for players with FIDE Rating and RM100 for players without any FIDE Rating. Previous National Junior Masters (for both boys and girls), National Masters and National Women Masters who have not exceeded the age limit will be given Free entry to the event.
As per the previous years, NJCC will be played over 9 rounds Swiss Pairing (Swiss Manager) using the classical time control of 90 minutes plus 30 seconds increment per player per move.
Champions for each Boys and Girls category will bag a challenge trophy with RM600 cash prize whilst the second placed player will earn RM400 and another RM200 for the 3rd place finisher. A special Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal shall be given to each of the top three players below the age of 14 and 12 years old.
