GiLoCatur and family left the tournament hall quite late because Anis, GiLoCatur's daughter, were among the six last players (meaning, three boards) in the Challengers section to finish their games. Both boards 3 and 5 were finished at about the same time. The last board to finish is board 14 between Teh De Zen and Lim Yu Chia. Their match resulted in a draw.
