10th CAS-Octagon 4th Quarter Allegro 2008 - Results

The final leg of the CAS-Octagon Allegro for the year registered a strong pool of 76 players. The newly refurbished TheChessCentre hall on 4th Floor of Kompleks Wilayah adequately fulfilled the required playing space. IA Hamid Majid who is manning the place promised to further upgrade the area to include air-conditioning system. CAS President Shafruddin reiterated the Association completed the task it set out to do for the year and hoped his Committee would receive the continued support from the sponsors, members and chess players. Ideas and volunteers were welcome so as to bring chess to the next higher level in Selangor and the country in general. Hon Secretary IA Lim Tse Pin confirmed the 11th series of the CAS-Octagon First Quarter Allegro 2009 would start off at the same premises on 18th January 2009. Given the support from the sponsor Octagon Consolidated Berhad and favourable response from the players the prize monies would be further increased. Finally to all Muslims 'Selamat Hari Raya Eidil Adha'

Nicholas Chan (in black shirt) blazed his way with a straight 7 points win. He earlier stopped Ian Udani in the 6th Round who had to settle for a second place. Committee Member/Hon Treasurer Fariz Shafruddin with 6 points was placed 3rd.
