There's 4 back to back ( almost) international chess tournaments after the Dresden 2008 Olympiad. The tournaments is :-
1) 1st Korea Open Chess Tournament to be held from 29 November to 5 December 2008 in Seoul, Korea
2) 5th SINGAPORE CHESS FEST 2008
- Singapore Masters & Challengers International Open Tournaments 9th to 15th December 2008
3) Kuala Lumpur Open 2008 (15th -21st December 2008)
4) Terengganu (Pencarian Jaguh Catur) a FIDE rated tournament (18th-22nd December 2008)
Will Mashafizul play in any of this tournament? I think he will probably play in Singapore and in KL Open /Terengganu. This will be great opportunity for Mashafizul or even other local players like FM Lim Yee Weng and Mok Tze Meng to get norms.
