I was away at Slim River the whole day yesterday (Sunday) playing at the KLK Tan Sri Lee Loy Seng Event. When I finally got home, my wife told me an 'anonymous' had been attacking me and my kids in the comments section of a recent article.
I had a look and quickly decided that it was just rubbish by some small-minded fella who knows next to nothing about chess strategy. So I promptly deleted all the several comments by 'anonymous' who I presume are from the same person. After all, that's what the delete and thrash-can buttons are for, isn't it? Rubbish into the rubbish bin and the house is clean again.
Really, if this 'anonymous' fella is a chess coach, I really pity its students. A coach who doesn't understand basic match strategy. How far can the students of such a coach go? Jaguh Kampung? Maybe, but that's about it. Do we still have to wonder why Malaysian chess seems to be going nowhere if we have such 'coaches' or 'experts'?
However before I got home, my daughter, WCM Fong Mi Yen, was so infuriated with the unwarranted 'injustifiable' attacks on me and family, that she decided to counter-attack and show up the ignorance of this 'anonymous' fella, who had presented itself as an 'expert' or 'knowlegeable' chess person. So Mi Yen wrote a piece to explain basic match strategy when playing against a GM in her blog and link it from my blog's comments section.
I deleted that link as I did not want anything connected to 'anonymous' to remain on this blog. However, Jimmy had read my Mi Yen's post before I deleted and commented here that he agrees with the strategy part of Mi Yen's lesson for the 'anonymous' chess 'expert'. Due to popular requests and to make sense of Jimmy comments on this matter, I am re-establishing the link to Mi Yen's posting in her blog.

After reading Mi Yen's post, you might have better idea why this fella used 'anonymous' instead of using a real name. Go figure.
