It is a sad news for Malaysian Chess. Earlier this morning, our Malaysian Chess Community lost one of the rising chess family in the country. Cikgu Sabirin and wife Puan Halina, including 2 daughters, Siti Khadijah (12) and Siti Aishah (14) who are both rising chess juniors in the country, were involved in a fatal accident near Kemasik, Terengganu at about 1:30am. According to sources, Cikgu Sabirin and family were on their way back to Dungun after participating in the 3C event in Petaling Jaya earlier in the day.
They will be sadly missed by the chess community.
Our condolences to the family - Alfatihah.....
