Both Malaysian IMs drew their respective games in the morning session today. IM Mas drew with GM Anh Dung at Table #5 playing white, whereas IM Yee Weng drew with FM Nhu Tang playing black at Table #13.
GiLoCatur noticed that the young Singaporean FM, DH Fernandez who has participated in several chess tournaments in Malaysia won against his higher-rated opponent. Meanwhile, Francois Wolfaardt (below picture) from South Africa whom GiLoCatur's daughter, Anis Fariha, has played against twice this year drew with his opponent who is more than 300 Elo from him.
In the next round that will start in about 45 minutes from now, IM Mas will play against Indian IM Sharma at Table #4. Meanwhile IM Yee Weng will face his Vietnamese opponent, Le Quang Long. The former will play black while the latter will play white.
GOOD LUCK guys!
