Superb Performance of Azarya in 2013 WYCC

WOW! GiLoCatur is amazed at the performance of Azarya Jodi Setyaki, an Indonesia junior chess player in the WYCC 2013 held in Al Ain, UAE. Playing in Under 16 Open section and going to the final 11th round, 15-year-old Azarya has scored 7.5/10 points. He had 5 wins, 3 draws and 1 defeat. In the pairings of the final round, Azarya is the lowest rated player among the top 5 boards. Having Elo ratings of  2112, he played at 2400-strength according to

What GiLoCatur likes about Azarya is his coolness. 

Could Azarya win his final round game against the top seed player from Poland and be among the winners?

GiLoCatur also noticed that an Indian player named Rohan Ahuja is also playing in the WYCC and in the same category as Azarya.Like Azarya, Rohan also took part in AAG 2012.
