Winning 5 games in a tournament in local chess tournament especially in Under 12 category normally will entitle a chess player in the Top 10 spot. But in this tournament, Fikri just managed to get 11th place. Such is an indicator how competetive the Kuala Langat Chess Tournament is.
One of the reasons is because Fikri was defeated by schoolmate, Aina Farzana, as early as in the first round. And in the last and important round, Fikri could not win againts Shreyes where had he win it he will be in the Top Three spot.
