Chess tournament 2011

Just a short note about Wei's chess tournament.  This round he faced stiff competition.  From last year's 7th place, he is ranked 12th place in his zone for boys under 10 years old (he even had to bring his birth cert to prove that he is under 10 this year).
When he went into the WP round, he faced greater challenges from a school named Lee Rubber School.  Wow, I didn't even know there is such a school.  I had a chat with my mom, and she knows, this school is located in Gombak, near a rubber estate, and the rubber boss built the school for the kids in the area, hence the name.
Anyway, it turned out that the competitors from this school were really good. Out of a total of 7 games, Wei won 3 and lost 4.  So he could not proceed to the finals.  He was a bit disappointed but he took it well.
