Mashafizul won his last round game against local player Fernandito Pialan (2282) to finish with 6 points from 11 rounds.
However, I noticed that at the main site , the final standing show that Mas only collect 5 points from 11 rounds , 45th place with a 2305 performance rating. I think there’s must be a mistake somewhere. Because the correct points should be 6 points and he should probably end at 13 to 21 placing.
Chinese GM Li Chao (photo right) win the 2nd 2008 Philippine International Open Chess Tournament at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center that just concluded today. He won $6,000 top prize and the trophy. Chao with 8 points won through a tie breaker which involve five-way tie between him and Weiqi Zhou of China, GM Le Quang Liem of Vietnam, Filipinos IM Julio Catalino Sadorra and GMBong Villamayor.
If you still remember, Li Chao is also the defending champion of Malaysian Open 2007.
