No games available.

1978.09.??-?. 16 players.

The event was held at the same time and venue as the qualification phase of the 18th National and the 3rd National Junior Championships.

Albeit only three provinces participated, the inaugural of Indonesia National Women Chess Championship didn’t lack of quality players. Hanik Maria and Mun’yati represented Central Java while Nanik Wijaya led the team of the host, DI Yogyakarta, which was packed with 7 players. DKI Jakarta sent their best players in the likes of Betty Pontoh, Imasniti, Tati Nurachmanti, Lamria Situmeang, and Darmayanti Tamin. Those players of DKI Jakarta were among the country’s best.

The result was rather surprising. None of DKI Jakarta’s players came on the top. Hanik Maria of Central Java won the honor to be crowned as the first Indonesia National Women Chess Champion. She was alone in the top of table above more favorable players. DKI Jakarta’s Betty Pontoh, Imasniti, and Tati Nurachmanti ranked in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th respectively. Mun’yati was at 5th. Nanik Wijaya placed at 6th. The future Indonesian star, the teenager Darmayanti Tamin, learned a hard lesson. She was found herself at 11th.

Darmayanti Tamin, Nanik Wijaya, and Mun’yati chess careers took a hike during 1980s. They were part of Indonesia team for Chess Olympiads 1982-6.
