What is Black's best move from this diagram?

Thursday, July 14, 2011


The bleak moments of chess activities in Kelantan had been replaced somewhat with the news that two of our own had passed an arbitration seminar held by FIDE and were awarded a norm of a FIDE Arbiter title. Nik Ahmad Farouqi and Nik Mohd Azrihan, both were among the 23 Malaysians who succeeded in the examination test, held after the end of the lectures.

It is hoped that these two, widely considered as the new chess powerhouses in terms of chess managing activities (mainly held in Kuala Krai), will bring their new experience to upgrade the status of Kelantan chess arena.

Let us all Kelantanese pray that they will get their full norms soon, insha Allah.
