Malaysia Weiqi Association had just ended their 2nd League (Ranking Trial) yesterday [29th August, 2009]. Apparently everyone was doing well in the league since the league came with handicap systems.
Some of the long missing Malaysian Go Players had happened to attend Japan Club regularly such as: Song san, Wynes and Jimmy.

It was pretty unfortunate and disappointed that only Shino still attending Japan Club after it had been said ever since Xinwen left Malaysia for Holiday [May-July].
However, there came a new-comer, Anthony who started to be a regular member of Japan Club and very passionate in the game of Go too, even tried KGS.
According to the event of International Go Federation, the 20th World Pair Go Tournament will be commencing in Japan of November. Malaysia is sending Jimmy (2-dan) and Suzzane (3-dan) as representative team.
Supposedly Alex Chan had been selected to go for this event [REF] however due to the immediate event of Asian Amateur Baduk Championship in November 27th, Alex had to choose one of it thus Alex gave this opportunity to Jimmy.
Note: *Jimmy was replaced by Hock Doong due to early depart.

After White had made the marked [triangle] move, it had seemed to be the climax of this game. Matching the playing of Suzzane, this is pretty typical situation to be happened in some capturing race with liberties chase.
Black’s deciding next moves would be probably trying to save both group in the middle by killing White E11 group or either the corner C17 group.
