As the previous round, both IM Mas and IM Yee Weng drew with their respective opponents. The top seed, GM Le Quang Liem, the only 2600-rated player in this tournament really played so well thus far. He thrashed his own countryman who is also the 2nd seed. So, now he is leading with 1 point ahead of the rest of players.
In the fifth round on Saturday morning, Mas is paired with a Vietnamese Candidate Master (CM), Nguyen Hoang Nam at Table #4. Can Mas win this time? While Yee Weng will face a Singaporean FM, Dominic Lo playing black. Hopefully, Yee Weng will start winning to improve his scores and position.
