FEMALE PLAYERS WHO ARE NO LONGER ACTIVE AS A COMPETITIVE PLAYER

A blast from the past.

One of the strongest female players who used to be my student at chess is Mumtaz Muhammad. After graduated she did play fo some time but when the has come (getting married and raising her child) it is "bye-bye" to the chess world.

Below is her game against another great local femal player, in fact she may be our best female player ever produced in our local scene.. Siti Zulaikha.

In this encounter, the readers may find that Siti Zulaikha had been crushed by Mumtaz. However, Mumtaz had failed to deliver the final nail in the coffin and the turning point was so painful.
