List of Singaporean chess Championship:
Jan-08-10  Cibator: He tied for 4th-5th (with England's P N Lee)at the world junior (u20) championship, 1963.
Feb-16-10  asianwarrior: <GrahamClayton> Eugene Torre won the 1972 Zone 10 Championship and Tan,WS Kan and Max Fuller finished equal second. Since there are only two slots from Zone 10 to play in the interzonal,the trio have a playoff for the second slot and Tan won.
