The 2nd Dragon Capital Vietnam Chess Open
As the previous round, both IM Mas and IM Yee Weng drew with their respective opponents. The top seed, GM Le Quang Liem, the only 2600-rated player in this tournament really played so well thus far. He thrashed his own countryman who is also the 2nd seed. So, now he is leading with 1 point ahead of the rest of players.
In the fifth round on Saturday morning, Mas is paired with a Vietnamese Candidate Master (CM), Nguyen Hoang Nam at Table #4. Can Mas win this time? While Yee Weng will face a Singaporean FM, Dominic Lo playing black. Hopefully, Yee Weng will start winning to improve his scores and position.
