IM Mashafizul end his campaign in the 1st ASEAN Chess Circuit with a lost to Indonesian IM Nasib Ginting in the 11 Round. Mas was very unfortunate to lost the game because he was clearly better in the most part of the game. However at the last minute with a pawn up, Mas blunder when he overlooked a simple but strong queen check by Nasib Ginting which force him to surrender his queen and get a rook as a compensation- which is of course not enough to safe the game.
