IM Mashafizul win his 8th round game against Indian - Soman Satchisanand ( FIDE 2251) n round 8 yesterday. He will be paired against another Indian - Phadke Sohan (photo right) (FIDE 2283) in round 9 today. Mas now collected 5.5 points from 8 round...not bad if you look at the score but all of his opponent is rated lower then him so far... so he must continue his momentum to regain back his rating loss. Phadke will be his 9th straight Indian opponent in this tournament!
