3rd Penang Heritage City International Chess Tournament - GEENEISH is the Champion for the Challengers

Based on the Final Ranking results from, GEENEISH SIVALINGAM is the champion in the Challengers section for this year edition. He won his final round against Soh Isaak Ethan Hong Han who has 1/2 point more. 

Geeneish won seven games and drew two of them. Very impressive. The players he drew with are Mohd Faizal Roslan and Mat Zaki Yeop in the third and sixth round respectively. Still very clear in GiLoCatur's memory the double rook endgame in his match against veteran player, Mat Zaki. (Ofcourse, because GiLoCatur captured it on photo ... LOL). Congratulation to him.

Below is the Top 20 Final Ranking.

R3 T3 - Mat Zaki (black) vs Geeneish (white)
GiLoCatur thought black had advantage after its both rooks had been placed at the white's back rank. Black's King is very active but open (vulnerable) for white attack. Any comment?
