Top Seeds draw first blood at the 64th National Championships! - by Junior Tay

IM Goh Wei Ming and IM Steven Kim Yap, the top 2 seeds in the National Premier staked their claim for the title with wins over IM Luis Chiong and IM Lim Yee Weng respectively in the first round. The remaining game saw IM Rico Mascarinas and IM Enrique Paciencia split the point early.

What else can you expect from Yee Weng than the Dragon! But can he reach there  with Morra Gambit expert Steven Yap in a fighting mood?

The battle of the two tactical monsters Luis and Wei Ming saw a great central skirmish. Wei Ming flubbed a pawn which Luis missed and in the latter's time trouble, Wei Ming increased the pressure and netted the point with panache.
