Dungun Chess Open is on-going. The tournament that held in a resort in Terengganu is played on two days - Friday and Saturday. The first day is over. Four rounds had been played. About 100 players including several non-Terengganu participants. Below are the top 25 seeded participants headed by Soon Wai Cheong. Non-Terengganu players dominate the top 10 seedings.
Based on below Round 5 pairings from chess-results.com, three players have the full 4 points entering the fifth round. They are the top seed, Wai Cheong, Abdullah Che Hassan and Kamaluddin Yusof. Can they hold on until the final round? Who will lose point? Is one of the three full pointers will finally be crowned the champion? Or can the defending champion win again this time? We'll find out the answers after the tournament completes later today (Saturday). Good Luck to all the participants!
