PGN 2014.09.17. 9 games. Complete.

2012.04.21. 1 round Team Match. Each team has 10 players.

Indonesia defeated Australia 6.5-3.5 in an internet U16 chess match on April 21, 2012. The match was held on server.

The Australian team was made up of players most aged 14 or 15. The Indonesian team, featuring WFM Medina Warda Aulia on the first board, included younger players between 10-15 who had already achieved Asian or ASEAN titles in their age categories. The Chessaroo played from four cities in Australia: Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney, and Melbourne while Indonesia team played from Sekolah Catur Utut Adianto (Utut Adianto Chess School) at Bekasi.

Before the event began the Australians were hot favorites considering the big FIDE rating’s gap between the two team. Indonesia had forewarned Australia that their low FIDE ratings could not be severely underestimated, due to a lack of internationally rated opportunities for their players. In fact 6 out of 10 players of Indonesian team had no ratings.

The warning became reality during the match. The scoreline didn’t even do justice to reflect Indonesian team domination. The winning margin could be greater. Medina and Ummi Fisabilillah were on the unlucky side to get forfeited due technical problems. Medina suffered from an internet disconnection at move 36 in an equal position against FM Bobby Cheng. Ummi had the same problem. Her opponent, Leteisha Simmonds, didn’t need to make a single move to win.

The event was part of Australia’s U16 squad preparation for the 2012 Youth Olympiad in Turkey later in the year. Indonesia had a different agenda. Little known to Australia, Indonesia was ‘guilty’ for fielding two members of the Indonesian 2012 Olympiad Women Team. They were WFM Medina Warda Aulia (born on July 7, 1997) and Ummi Fisabilillah (born on February 10, 2000).
