Myanmar Traditional Chess Friendly Matches
After the closing ceremony of Campomanes Memorial Yangon International Grandmaster Tournament, the friendly matches of Myanmar Traditional Chess are played between the visiting masters and Myanmar masters. Even though they learned it very recently, the visiting masters played well based on their international chess skills. But the outcome is in favour of the local players. Malaysian IM Mok Tze Meng managed a draw against well-experienced FM Kyaw Kyaw Soe. Bravo! He can become a threat to the hope of Myanmar players winning gold medal in 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar. After the games, the chess sets and the booklets on Myanmar Traditional Chess were given to them as the souvenirs.
