The Malaysian National Youth Scrabble Championship 2009 was held on the 26th and 27th of September 2009 in Berjaya Times Square.
Due to prioritization to examinations as well as other personal engagements, only 9 out of the top 20 selected players turned up for the competition. Despite having only 9 people in the fray, there was no mercy shown by each player in every game.
After a full round robin, Ker Jen Ho who was on the top with William Kang, minced his opponent 471-312. However, the setback did not stop William from romping the rest of his games with 5 consecutive wins to clinch the title.
Scott Chung and Ker Jen Ho came in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
MNYSC 2009 is the last MSA tournament to be held in Berjaya Times Square in year 2009. MSA would like to express our gratitude to Berjaya Times Square for being ever obliging and hospital to provide the venue for our competitions.
Nevertheless, big kudos to K.Sundraraj and gang for such a great job done.
