IM Mashafizul in SIO 2008
IM Mashafizul end his campaign in The SIO 2008 with a draw in the last round against Indonesian Akwie Setiawan (2207).GM Ganguly Surya Shekhar (2579) photo right , GM Zhang Zhong (2617), GM Gawain Jones (2562) and IM Zhao Zong Yuan (2487) shared 1st place with 7points each. However, based on the better tie break, GM Ganguly was announced the top winner.
Meanwhile Mas only collected 5 points from 9 rounds to finish 36th place which is far from his initial seeding ( 19th). It must have been a sad ending for him after starting quite well for the first 5 round. So guys we have to wait patiently for Mas to get his GM norm in future tournaments and let wish him all the best.
