It is very obvious that GM Li Chao of China has won the gold medal in the men event. He has unassailable 7.5/8 points. Li Chao, a DATMO champion, won all his rounds except the second round where he drew with an Ukrainian opponent. At 49th rank, Xin Hao has scored 4 points. Both Au and Fadzil has 3.5 points while Siah has accumulated 3 points. In the final round, Xin Hao has a tough match against an Indonesian International Master (IM). Both Au and Fadzil will face unrated opponents while Siah will have 2100-rated opponent.
Hopefully, all the Malaysian players will win their respective final round on Sunday.
