Jax Tham Wins The March Rapids, 27th March 2010

On Saturday, the Excel Chess Academy ran the March Rapids Chess Tournament at OUG, Kuala Lumpur with 16 registered players. As most of the games completed very fast per round, parents of the children desired for a one-day tournament instead.

Jax Tham, ever willing to hear and comply with the wishes of parents, relented and agreed to turn it into a one-day tournament. And so the supposedly two-day tournament turn out to be a one-day affair.

JaxTham

Jax Tham (picture) won the 10 round rapids with 9.0 points. Lim Zhou Ren ended with second position with the same 9.0 points but weaker tie-break points. In third place was Tham Chee Leong, Jax’s son, with 8.0 points. Fourth place is Chang Chye Tan with 7.0 and fifth was Tan Jia Hong, also with 7.0 points.

So here are the final rankings of the March Rapids and round-by-round results of all participating players.
