Final. 1972.06.??-??. Round Robin 13 rounds. 14 players. NM titles: Monang Sinulingga, Tigor Hutagalung, Pokan Damanik.

Cheating in chess takes many forms. One of them is pre-arranged games as happened in this event. Ds FKN Harahap in Sejarah Catur Indonesia (History of Indonesian Chess) wrote, “MHS Nainggolan, who had to give a free point to a certain younger player early in the tournament, lost his appetite to play well. He finally ended up as the tailender. The defending champion Arovah Bachtiar admitted that he was disgusted. He then played sluggishly.”

The event wasn’t all about a sad story.

Now Indonesia had a new champion in 28-year-old Jacobus Sawandar Sampouw who employed an interesting style. The Ujung Pandang born tended to play positionally with a big attention to the opening details, something that we couldn’t find from the past champions such as Bachtiar or Ardiansyah.

Another silver lining was the rise of Monang Sinulingga, a player from Tanah Karo, North Sumatera. Previously unknown he placed himself in the big five. Sinulingga beat olympians Ardiansyah, Eddy Suwandhio, and Tigor Hutagalung. He was a natural player meaning he didn’t know much about chess theories. Media blew up a myth that he was illiterate which was, of course, untrue. Sinulingga had soon become a very popular player in Indonesia.
