The Brunei Chess Federation (BCF) is currently holding its first ever IM title events – the Brunei Invitational IM Tournaments being held from 25 July to 4 August in Bandar Seri Begawan and I am honoured to serve as the Chief Arbiter. Both are 10 player round robins, with a strong ASEAN presence, and a touch of glamour with WGM Irene Kharisma Sukandar also participating. (All participants in group photo above). Details of the just started Brunei Invitational IM Tournament 1 is at http://www.chess-results.com/tnr35656.aspx?lan=1 and Brunei Invitational IM Tournament 2 at http://www.chess-results.com/tnr36348.aspx?lan=1 In Search of Everest The BCF is very ably led by their long serving President Hj Zainal Abidin Ali who is well supported by a dedicated team of professionals, and in doing so has always chosen its own path in chess – which is whatever that makes sense for Brunei (and for Brunei chess!) given its relative small size.

Why not? If you believe you have (or do in fact) standing or enjoy domain… like would a parent, a teacher, a coach, an official, a patron, a sponsor, a player, etc. No need for elaboration here. I think the only danger is when you assume and/or do not properly research, or worst, have an agenda to promote. It’s a free world (I hope?) and in the end the “market” decides whether you or I (or whatever them is!) can agree or not… and really if you think about it, all choices are equally valid.
