The results of Malaysian players against foreign opponents are not impressive this morning in the fifth round. IM Mas could not stop his opponent, IM Dimakiling, from scoring the perfect 5/5 point on the top board. Nabil could not win over FM Castellano. Li Tian could not steal any point playing black versus the second seed and only GM in the tournament, Murshed of Bangladesh. Only NM Edward managed to draw with IM Chiong Zacarias.
Round 6 is being played at the moment. The Malaysian players at the top five boards are only Eng Chiam and IM Mas who face FM Castellano and FM De Ramos respectively. Good luck to all the Malaysian players. Fight and play till the end!
