1994.05.29-06.10. Swiss 9 rounds. Number of players is unknown.
Jakarta, as many other capital cities in the world, has been fast becoming a melting pot for just about everything. Chess is one example. GM Ardiansyah (ex South Borneo), GM Edhi Handoko (ex Central Java), IM Max Arie Wotulo (ex North Celebes), IM Nasib Ginting (ex Yogyakarta), IM Cerdas Barus (ex North Sumatera), Kasmiran (ex South Sumatera), to name but a few, were all top Indonesian chess players who made Jakarta their home.
The 1995 DKI Jakarta Provincial Championship was almost a mirror of the National Championship with the exception of the absences of GM Utut Adianto and FM Ruben Gunawan. The event also served as a preliminary selection for that year National Championship Qualification. Thirty players would be chosen to go to a further selection to represent the province.
No player had a total domination of the event. Players assumed the lead alternately.
After five rounds only the 1992 Asian Junior Champion, IM Andi Supardi Suhendra, who could register full points. Haryadi Sucipto took over the lead in the next round by beating Suhendra. In round 7 Haryadi could not capitalize anything against Suryaman and was held to draw. He was still in the lead with 6 VP but had been caught by IM Nasib Ginting, FM Syarif Mahmud, and Suhendra. In the penultimate round (8th) Syarif tamed Haryadi while Nasib took care Suhendra.
Going to the last round only three players who still had a shot to the prestigious Jakarta Champion crown: Nasib and Syarif with 7 VP, and FM Irwanto Sadikin with 6.5. A bunch of players with 6 VP had their hopes nothing but dashed-off since Syarif would be playing Irwanto. The winner of the event would reach a minimum VP of 7.5. Both leaders, Syarif and Nasib, didn’t loosen up their grip in the last round. They demolished Irwanto and IM Cerdas Barus respectively.
Syarif and Nasib finally ended up with the same VP (8) but the crown belonged to Syarif on a better Solkoff.
