Its that time of the Festival where we do the Malaysia Open Blitz Chess Championship and for this year, the Blitz event shall be held on Friday, 16th August 2013 starting at 3:00pm. Entry fees are RM35 with the Top 16 players to win prizes at the end of the 9 rounds event. The top 8 players will then fight it out in a Knock Out Championship style play where the winner will earn RM500 for his/her effort.
