Hi everyone,

Nur Nabila Azman Hashim - Malaysian 
women's chess champion

Malaysia just got their new women's chess champion - Nur Nabila Azman Hashim. The runners-up was her sister Nur Najiha. For most of the tournament, the two were leading together. Nur Nabila also beat defending champion Fong Mi Yen.

Nur Najiha made the first breakthrough in the sixth round as she overcame Camila Johari, while Nur Nabila could only score a draw with Tan Li Ting, another former national women’s champion. However, Nur Najiha’s sole lead in the championship was short-lived. In the seventh round, she drew with Tan, while Nur Nabila easily overcame a challenge from Amira Syahmina Zulkafli.
