Round 7 Result
Ceased fire were consensually agreed by the top three boards. GM Ngoc draw against his compatriot - GM Dao Tien Hai, IM Irwanto Sadikin draw against Kazakhstan champion - Evgeny Pak and GM Marat Dzhumaev draw against his fellow countrymen - IM Tahir Vakhidov (photo right) who is the Brunei Darussalam National coach.
Indonesian GM Susanto Megaranto who beat Singaporean - FM Timothy Chan is actually the man to watch in this tournament. So far , all his game has ended in a decisive results although two is at his own expense which is against relatively lower rated player - CM Nguyen Hoang Nam and IM Dede liu.
Ian Udani lost to 13 years old Indonesian - Rahman Masruri. Probably tiredness has start to effect his performance.
NM Edward Lee failed to continue his momentum after being beaten by IM Richard Bitton. However the most interesting results for the host country is when International Arbiter - Najib Wahab (photo left) beat former national player - Ismail Ahmad. Probably after the tourney Najib will have to do some soul searching to decide whether he want to concentrate on arbitrating or playing!?
