14 Year Old (Not yet 15!) Roshan Ajeet Singh is Malaysia’s 2012 National Champion

Nationals R8 Standings

Roshan Ajeet Singh with 8/8 has won the National Closed Championship with one round to go. He will play second placed Muhd Syazwan Zulkifli in the last round but as his score is 1.5 points more the result does not matter.

Last year Roshan won the U-14 National Age Groups Championship and towards the end of the year had improved sufficiently to win the Bronze medal on reserve board for the Malaysian team playing in the World U-16 Olympiad. This year he moved up to win the U-16 National Age Group Championship and now, just two months later, he is has become our youngest ever National Champion!

In this period he has gained 200+ rating points fighting in every game and learning from every tournament.

Well done!
