 VP: Victory points.

PGN 2013.09.15. 2 games. Incomplete.

Qualification. 1954.04.??-?.
Final. 1954.06.05-10. Round Robin 13 rounds. 13 players.

The championship consisted of two stages. The qualification was played at Tegal, Central Java, in April 1954. The final was held at the same city from June 5th to 10th, 1954.

The domination of Jakarta players was unavoidable. The city placed six out of thirteen finalists. The best Jakarta player, Baris M Hutagalung, played with a mission. His entry was denied at the 1st National Championship 1953. He annihilated almost all of his opponent. He scored 11 points from possible 12. That was enormous 92%. Baris eventually proved that he was the number one Indonesian player at that time.

The defending champion, Arovah Bachtiar, saved some honours by grabbing runner-up position. A promising player, 21-year-old Max Arie Wotulo, quietly placed himself in the middle of the table. Max then emerged as one of the Indonesian top players.

A tribute should be paid to elderly Haji Rachmat from Solo. He played consistently despite of his age and was in the top three for the second consecutive time.
