Final Round 9 Results
Among the top four boards, GM Nguyen Ngoc Truon Son of Vietnam, GM Susanto Megaranto of Indonesia and GM Saidali Iuldachev of Uzbekistan won their respective games. On the third board IM Richard Bitoon of Phillipines and IM Tahir Vakhidov of Uzbekistan drew. Therefore, GM Nguyen Son is the champion of the KL Open Chess Championship for this year's edition. If you notice all the top five winners are GMs and have 2500+ rating. What GiLoCatur can conclude that there is a difference between strong (masters) chess players in a tournament with other average and normal chess players. Average chess players especially to young Malaysian chess players should learn and emulate strong and master players.
Tahniah or congratulation to GM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son.
