Yeoh Li Tian (Malaysia) finish 4th place with 8 1/2 points in Boys under 8 in The World Youth Chess Championship 2007 which has taking place in Kemer-Antalya, Turkey from 17-29 November 2007 . Konstantin Savenkov from Russia finished 1st place followed by Qasimov Chingiz (Azerbaijan) and 3rd place Sinyanskiy Maxim (Russia).

I think this is the best ever result for any Malaysian in World Youth Championship. The best ever result before is from Mas Hafizul and Ooi Chern Eee who finish 5th in the past. Congratulation Yeoh!

Li Tian has beat among others, India under-7 champion Harshal Shahi (photo right) - the youngest internationally rated chess player in India.

Below are their games.
