Round 1 Pairing is out!

The pairing has been publish! Here it is :-

Open Section

Bo.85MAS Malaysia (MAS)Rtg-12ENG England (ENG)Rtg0 : 0
12.1IMMas Hafizulhelmi2422-GMAdams Michael2728
12.2IMMok Tze-Meng2416-GMMcShane Luke J2657
12.3Tan Khai Boon2160-GMHowell David W L2616
12.4FMLong Peter2302-GMJones Gawain C B2576

England is resting their ex- Vice World Champion - Nigel Short but their top horse - Mickey Adams will play and faced Mashafizul. From my observation, both have a very same positional style but of course Adams rating is 200+ higher then Mas.

I'once joked that it will be great to watch Peter Long play against Nigel Short but it will not be the case this time because as i mentioned, Nigel will not play in this round.

Women Section
