Kosan Tag Team Blitz W1-W9 Stats

The final of Kosan Tag Team Blitz concluded yesterday which saw Abdul Sahim + Mohd Diya combination won this week edition. They will bring home the trophy (as per agreed by the players).

I would like to thank the Tourn Director Mr Hanapi for the ideas of making it weekly, and also Dr Zulfikar for sponsoring the cup. I really hope that an event like this can continue throughout the year end. Not forgetting to all 30 players who came to support every week!

Best player after week 9 = Abdul Sahim Wising

I have included some stats of all 9 weeks games. By looking at it, I have collected 66.5 points over 86 possible and scored a 75% winning percentage with 65 wins, 18 losses and 3 draws. I will try to do the head to head record when I have time.

Junaidih aka Tiger Balm won a point ahead of Abdul Sahim Wising (whom he lost to 2-0) and Mohd Diya aka Momodiov. Playoff for 2nd and 3rd place was won by ASW by 1.5 – 0.5. Perhaps next time just Armaggedon? Thanks to all players who participate in the mini tourney.

Special thanks to Zulfahmi, eventhough zero plus no luck, still shows very good fight. One day he will be like one of us (GM = Gila Main dan tida ingat pulang).
