Our former National Champions (plus a two time Malaysian Champion) have agreed to a training match with Singapore's current hot players - Jarred was the local "Swiss Tournament King" last year (prior to National Service) before handing the mantle to Weiliang this year. Wei Ming needs no introduction - just a couple of GMs norms and a Asian Nations Bronze medal to boot.
So here goes...

Stakes: Losing team for each round must buy dinner or high tea.
1. Can Terry's 'rubbish' openings confuse the tournament-hardened Wei Ming, Weiliang and Jarred or can they cut through the crap?
2. Can the Ayams' ancient theory survive against the theoretical weapons of our Young Punks?
3. Can Wei Ming continue his unbeaten streak in the training matches?
4. Will Terry drive his car in this time or will he just take a cab?
