Mok draw first blood!

30.09.2001 - The underdog-FM Mok Tze Meng produced a stunning result by winning the first game (as black!) against Malsyian no.1 - IM Mashafizul in the Malaysian Master (semifinal match) held in DATCC, KL . Mok show no fear by playing his beloved opening - Mo(k)dern Defense which his opponent must have studied it deeply before the match. Instead Mok come with a new "dubious" looking move (6...e6) which manage to confuse Mas who failed to choose the correct plan against it. With Mas looking clueless in the middlegame, Mok slowly but steadily invade Mas position. Somewhere in the middle game, Mas blundered a pawn and his position getting worse move after move. In the end, Mas had to resign due to black's passed pawn armada which is hard for him to handle.

Malaysian Master (Semifinal) Game 1, 30.09.2009

1. e4 g6 2. d4 Bg7 3. Nc3 c6 4. f4 d5 5. e5 h5 6. Be3 e6?! Voluntarily restrict the mobility of his light square bishop which look like a dubious looking plan but Mok has his own idea! 7. Nf3 b6 8. Qd2 Ba6 An original way to dispose his passive piece. 9. O-O-O Nh6 10. g3 Bxf1 11. Rdxf1 Nd7 12. h3 b5 13. Rfg1 Nb6 14. Bf2 Nc4 15. Qd3 Qa5 16. Kb1 Bf8 17. Nd1 Rb8 18. g4 Rb6 19. Be1 b4 20. Bh4 Be7 21. Rg2? Mas main problem start here. He should have play 21.Bxe7 21...Ra6 22. Qb3 Bxh4 23. Nxh4 hxg4 24. hxg4 Nxg4! Mas probably missed this cute tactic. 25.Rxg4? is of course lost to 25...Nd2+ and white lost his queen. 25.Kc1 Qxa2 26. Qxa2 Rxa2 27. Kb1 Nge3 28. Re2 Nxd1 29. Kxa2 Ndxb2 30. Kb3 Kd7 31. Ree1 a5 32.
