We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown
The final countdown

The Count down
10 Number of days before the start of National Closed 2011. Tick tock tick tock...time is running out!
9 Number of rounds for National Closed.
8 Number of place allocate as a Sea Games Finalist
7 Number of players above the Master rating (FIDE 2100)
6 Number of points that i am aiming for, should be enough for top ten.
5 Number of hours between round....meaning if your 9.30 am game lasted for 120 moves, ( it will be played for 5 hours) you just have enough time for toilet break and start your 2.30 pm game immediately though i believe perhaps the arbiter will allowed your game to start half an hour late or something...
4 Number of level at Kompleks Wilayah in which the battle will take place.
3 Number of former NM that take part (men category)
2 Number of groups...2 groups , you either junior or senior! You cannot remain neutral...No, just kidding, ofcourse 2 here is the groups Men and Women
1 Number of NM titled being offered
0 We have a take off!...0 is also the cash prized being offered to the winners

It's the final countdown
(The final countdown)
Ohh, it's the final countdown
