PGN 2020.01.08. 11 games. Incomplete. Please help us to complete the games.

1986.10.??-?. Round Robin 13 rounds. 14 players. Rating average 2428. Category VIII. GM norm 9.5. IM norm 7.

The event is the most successful chess tournament held in Indonesia to date in term of producing GM norms. Three players who had the honor were IM Ardiansyah, IM Utut Adianto Wahjoewidajat, and IM Ronny Gunawan. Ardiansyah nailed his second and last GM norm.

Ardiansyah played the tournament of his life. He exceeded the GM norm requirement by half a point and became the co-champion with Yugoslav GM, Petar Popović. Despite losing twice to Ronny Gunawan and GM Slavoljub Marjanović, Ardiansyah confidently scored 10 VP for the rest of the games. He also won the direct encounter against the other half champion, Popović. Along the way Ardiansyah produced a number of beautiful games which inevitably drew an admiration from the audience. A fellow participant, GM Hans Ree of Netherlands, joined the unison lavishing a praise to Ardiansyah’s performance.

The other Indonesian players were less fortunate than the GM norm gainers. They placed well under all of the guest players. The tournament almost certainly brought the curtain down on the veteran IM Arovah Bachtiar’s international career. His golden years had been a distant past. The required strength and focus were simply not on his side anymore.

FIDE, in their next congress, approved unanimously Ardiansyah’s GM title. Utut Adianto delivered another GM norm at the Dubai Olympiad, December that year. Ronny Gunawan mysteriously took to a different path. In the next few years he had been vanished from the chess arena for a long long time. He was back at Telin International 2011 but was no longer a chess powerhouse he used to be.
