The winner will also join the leaders group. If they both draw, only three players have the highest score and will fight for the champion spot that offers RM 2,000.
Tbl 24: Fikri againts Toh Shen Nelson Kiu
Tbl 21: Irfan vs Awangku Kamarunsalehin (1/2-1/2)
Tbl 28: My opponent, Mark Song, is awaiting my move while I am taking pictures.
My opponent is quite strong. He knows the basic openings and has smart moves. Our pieces were about equal, just I was down a pawn. We had a queen and both rooks as well as pawns. He offered a draw and I accepted it.
Irfan just gets down from the third floor and told me that he drew his game.
