Final. 1955.08.??-?. Round Robin 13 rounds. 14 players.
Percasi (All Indonesia Chess Federation) awarded the National Master (NM) title for the first time. Only the big three of the event got the title. So Baris M Hutagalung, Lim Hong Gie (aka Lugito Hayadi), and Max Arie Wotulo became the Indonesian first NMs.
Baris finally could defend his title but not in easy way by all means. He needed help from Arovah Bachtiar in the last round to beat the new kid on the block Lim Hong Gie. Baris had to compete head-to-head neck-to-neck with Lim and now matured Max Arie Wotulo during the tournament. In fact it was Lim who led all the way until penultimate round.
The rising star Lim was only 15 years old. Believe it or not, in the previous year he still played in the Kanisius Junior High School ‘s chess event which was probably more a class meeting rather than a serious championship. One of his first trainers was MHS Nainggolan who also played in this event. Nainggolan respectfully claimed 6th place. Nainggolan himself was …17 years old.
Indonesian chess future suddenly looked bright. Watch out our fresh élite troop. Max was 22 years old, Arovah was 21, Nainggolan was 17, and Lim was only 15. If now Indonesian chess is still stuck in the mud, obviously it is not because of lack of talents.
