1st ASEAN MASTER CHESS CIRCUIT 2008 - Round 4 updated!


GM Tournament A


IM MasHafizul draw another game in round 4 in the GM Touramanent A against Pinoy National Master Nouri Hamed (2404). He so far has draw 4 straight games and collect 2 points to obtain 4th placed. However, as I mentioned before in my previous post, this standing is less accurate because there are six players in this group are playing one less game after failing to appear in the 1st round due to flight delay. They however were allowed to postponed their game later. IM
Nathanael Situru (2375) from Indonesia is the leader of this group with 3 points from 4 game. I remember this guy is quite famous when in Moscow Olympiad 1994 he beat England GM John Nunn with black in Sicilian English Attack! GM Zhang Zhong playing one game less is on third spot with 21/2 points.

GM Touranament B

FM Mok Tze Meng (right) take another beating this time from another Pinoy Oliver Barbosa (2410). This made him the tail ender of his group. (GM Tournament B). Lack of tournaments play must be the reason of his rusty performances so far especially in this kind of tournaments . First seeded GM Mark Paragua ( 2521) another Pinoy is leading this group with 3 game sonly!
