Player Experiences, Trainer Observations, and Arbiter Insights
Hi Peter. Thanks for the insight into the sad and sorry state of Malaysian chess thus far. How did we (Malaysia) get into this rut, and more importantly, do we have the political will to get out of it? How is the money raised for chess development in Malaysia spent? Besides hoping and wishing for a future chess prodigy to be born in Malaysia, and short of ridding the deadwood of those in the chess-corridors-of-power of Malaysia, what else can parents, educators, corporations, chess stakeholders and politicians to do to ensure that Malaysia, like Myanmar, has at least one Chess Grandmaster of international standing? Short of changing certain chess committees overnight, how do we stop the rot and With who does the buck stop?
