1994.11.06-19. Round Robin 21 rounds. 21 players. NM titles: Syamsudin Wally, Achmad Kabau, Raymond Leihitu, Otties Pattipeilohy.
The National Masters Tournament had been held in the city of Ambon, Maluku, on November 6-19 1994. Eleven titled players participated in this event: 1 GM, 9 NMs, and 1 PM (Percasi Master). The event employed the Round Robin system meaning it had plenty rounds to go.
The event turned out to be GM Edhi Handoko‘s exhibition. The only GM in this event scored mercilessly, 18 VP out of 20 games or a whopping 90%. The one man show was easy to predict since no other national élite participated. NM Nessy Suheri (East Java), NM Cecep Kosasih (West Java), and NM Abir Dipo (DKI Jakarta) were probably the closest ones that could give Handoko a decent game. Those players trailed far behind Handoko, only placed themselves in the middle of the table.
The tournament was a big success for the host, Maluku. Aside of producing 4 new NMs (Syamsudin Wally, Achmad Kabau, Raymond Leihitu, and Otties Pattipeilohy), it had drawn a lot of spectators. There was no doubt that the chess fans of east part of Indonesia needed badly more quality events.
