Ahmad Shafruddin Arshad, Presiden of Chess Association of Selangor(CAS) gave away the prizes to the 25 winners of the event. Ahmad also announced that the long running Selangor Open will continue to run its long tradition next year as the committee was working on getting continued sponsorship for the major chess event. Partial sponsorship has been secured thus far.

All the prize winners had a photo session (shown below) at the end of the closing ceremony together with organising committee of the Chess Association of Selangor.

Here is the full ranking results (pix left) and the prize winners are noted on the right most column of the picture. Sorry for the poor quality of the picture results. That is what I have at the moment.
CM Fadli was in tenth position. Cheah Cheok Fung of Price Waterhouse Coopers finished in second place behind GM Ziaur. Shum seated on the floor (1st left) was the winner of the Under-12 category. Yours truly pipped Lim Chong by a half point in tie break points to win the Veterans’ Category. The four seated in the above picture are all committee members of CAS.
