2017.10.21-25. Round Robin 9 rounds. g/90/30. 10 players. Rating average 2195.

Piala Raja (King’s Cup) held the FMs section for the second time. The current edition had more players than the previous one. It involved 10 players with 5 host players alongside 5 guest players. The purpose of the event was to give more playing time and chances to gain more Elo ratings to the host players.

The host also pinned their hope to their best player, Muhammad Kahfi Maulana, to race for the championship glory. Kahfi, only twenty years of age, won Piala Ketua DPR RI (the Cup of the Chair of House of Representatives RI) in March that year. The tournament was a prestigious national event with many leading Indonesian players participated.

Kahfi began his campaign convincingly with 3 wins as many rounds but so did the veteran IM Awam Wahono. At the end of the fifth round three players led: Kahfi, Wahono, and IM Irwanto Sadikin The. In the next round the two IMs kept their lead by winning their games. Meanwhile Kahfi had to split the score with IM Dede Lioe. The following rounds, 7 and 8, were decisive for Kahfi as he paired against his most dangerous rivals Irwanto and Wahono. He had to score at least 1.5 VP in those rounds to maintain his chance for the first place.

The battle between Kahfi and Irwanto was surprisingly one sided. Irwanto committed a fatal mistake in move 15. Kahfi then needed only 11 more moves to finish him off. In round 9 Kahfi was not so lucky. His opponent, Wahono, steered the game to a maneuvering one. The veteran showed what his younger counterpart was lacking, grit and patience. Awam Wahono prevailed in 42 moves to ensure the champion trophy.

Kahfi sat only at third but his accomplishment was not a complete failure. He gained enormous 77 Elo rating points from this event.
