Thailand Open Chess 2009 ( 9th Bangkok Chess Open)

The 2009 Thailand Open Chess Championship or better know as the 9th Bangkok Chess Championship will be held from April 1st till 6th April 2009 at the Aisawan Resort & Spa, Pattaya, Thailand .

So far participant from Malaysia who has already registerd is only FM Peter Long. I think Malaysian top players should take this opportunity to play in this tournament because 7 GM's, 7 IM's and 2 FM's have already registerd to play so far. Big names such as GMs -Mikheil Mchedlishvili (FIDE 2619), Merab Gagunashvili (FIDE 2585), Georgy Timoshenko (FIDE 2551) registered. This means that there's good chance for Malaysian players such as Mashafizul and others to try to get the FIDE title (GM , IM or FM).
