2007.05.15-22. Double Round Robin 10 rounds. 6 players. Rating average 2272. Category I.
Perusahaan Listrik Negara (State Power Company) sponsored the event. It was no coincidence since the chairman of the company, Eddie Widiono, was also the chairman of Percasi (All Indonesia Chess Federation).
For Slovene WIM Jana Krivec and Indonesian WFM Irene Kharisma Sukandar, the tournament was a hunting ground for the WGM title. They need 7 points of 10 games to snatch a WGM norm. Jana had pocketed 2 norms before the tournament. If she got another norm, that would complete her WGM title. Irene was WIM-elect after she completed the title requirements in 2005 (Jababeka Jakarta) & 2006 (Chess Olympiad Turin). At 15 Irene was the National Champion. Now Indonesia was pinning its hope to her for soon becoming the first Indonesian WGM.
Three players excelled from the rest of the pack with three rounds to go. WGM Regina Pokorná, Jana, and Irene led with 4.5. That meant both Jana and Irene could only lose half points for the remaining rounds in order to get WGM norm.
In round 8 Irene was in the attacking mood against Jana’s favorite opening, Philidor. She pawn stormed Jana’s king side. Unfortunately Irene got carried away and blundered her queen. Irene’s hope for a WGM norm was nothing but dashed-off. Jana needed 1.5 points more from her last two opponents: WGM Natalia Zdebskaja and Regina. The Slovene WIM had every reason to be optimistic. Natalia had been out of sorts during the tournament and so far scored below 50% while Jana defeated Regina in their first encounter. The drama continued. Unexpectedly Natalia beat Jana in round 9. Natalia produced one of the finest positional games of the tournament behind the black pieces.
Both Irene and Jana had failed to get a WGM norm. Finally Regina concluded the tournament with half points more from those two players to win the championship trophy.
