How to beat a GM by...Yeoh Li Tian!

GM Ziaur Rahman (photo right) lost his first clock simul game last Thursday against none other then our young hot shot - Yeoh Li Tian. After four series of similar event, no player has beat the GM and only Fairin Zakaria  managed to 'steal' a half point. 

However, the record was break on the 5th simul. Below is the game.  Read the full results and report at DATCC blog
