Gunadarma have been relentlessly treating Indonesian chess fans with a plethora of chess events over decades. In the year of 2002 they came up with an event in a new format, an individual chess league. The league was planned to have 8 legs. The best 24 players from master and 8 from woman & non-master group would go to the grand final. The first leg took place at Wisma Catur (House of Chess), KONI DKI Building, Jakarta on June 22-23, 2002.

Fifteen year old Susanto Megaranto took the master group by storm. He let only two draws and no losses during the tournament. He scored convincing 8 VP. Almost everybody knew that Megaranto was such a promising player but his victory on top of the then best Indonesian players in the likes of GM Edhi Handoko, FM Awam Wahono, and FM Irwanto Sadikin was quite surprising.

The pre-tournament favorite Handoko and Wahono saved some honors on the runner-up positions scoring half a point behind Megaranto. The moment of truth for Handoko came in the last round against Megaranto. The only GM in this event still had a chance to claim the first place should he beat his younger opponent. Unfortunately Handoko couldn’t capitalize anything and had to settle for a draw.

The 1992 ASEAN University Student Champion, Arfan Khaidar of Pekalongan, Central Java, conquered the woman & non-master group. His province fella, Andreas Susanto of Semarang, placed on the 2nd. The only woman who passed through the big 8 was Evi Lindiawati of DKI Jakarta.
