IM Mashafizul draw against Pinoy - IM John Paul Gomez (2464) in the 7th round of The 3rd Philippine Open International Chess Tournament held at the La Legenda Hotel, Subic Bay Freeport, Olongapo City, Philipines today. He has now collected 4 1/2 points from 7 round and will meet Indonesian IM Tirto (2422) (photo right) in round 8.
Mas will surely faced a difficult task psychologically because Tirto has beat him early this year in the 1st ASEAN Chess Circut in Tarakan, Indonesia.
IM Tirto will meet IM Mas again!
