The Malaysian Chess Federation is proud to announce our new title holder – FIDE Master (FM) Yeap Eng Chiam, who has recently been awarded the title by FIDE due to his exceptional performance at last year’s Asian Cities Chess Team  Championships 2019 (Dubai Cup) which was held in Bangladesh from 10th July to 17th July.

Our heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to FM Yeap Eng Chiam on earning the title and we look forward to his potential improvement in the many more years to come in achieving more accolades for the country.
