Penang Retains MSSM Championship

Penang finished as the Overall Champion Title at the 2016 MSSM Chess Championship that concluded at Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan on Wednesday, retaining the title they won last year.

The northern state ran away with 122 points ahead of Kuala Lumpur (94) while Selangor came in 3rd with 90 points. As in past years, the fight was really seen as between the Big 3 of Penang, Selangor and KL. However, it is now two years running that Penang has been runaway winners after also finishing with more than 120 points in the 2015 edition.
