I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude to all chess well-wishers who had supported Oversea Family School and SCF effort in hosting GM Vishy Anand in Singapore. Special thanks to Mr. Alvin Ong in extending his hand in our media outreach. The simultaneous match of 50 players against Anand ended in 48-2. I wish the result will inspire CM Lee Jun Wei and Ethan Poh to greater heights.
My Congratulations to SGP Players, Cyrus Low and Liu Xiangyi, who had just been conferred the International Master title by FIDE recently. Both players had shown determination and grit to achieve the deserved title. We hope their feats shall spur more SGP junior players to follow suit and achieve their Master titles in Chess.
I commend the good results of our Team Singapore in the recent Asian Zonal 3.3 competition. WIM Gong Qianyun has finished third while IM Liu Xiangyi finished fourth in a relatively strong field of players from Asia. Team Singapore is represented by 5 players and we aim to see more Singapore participation in future editions.
Please join me to congratulate WIM Qianyun, IM Liu Xiangyi and IM Cyrus Low and we wish them all the best to their chess endeavours.
President, Singapore Chess Federation
