Rnd 7 -- Final round
Here are the top 4 boards which determine the top prizes. Others just play and pray to be in top 10.
Loo Swee Leong playing Wong Hao.. the last game to finish.. and Loo won it in a mad time scarmble. So Loo won RM1000.. but credit to wong Hao.. who came so close to finish 2nd if he can win.. So Wong Hao finished the tourney 8th..
Table 3: Draw.. it was a ding dong battle... Abdullah up a pawn.. but R+P vs Rook in the ending..
Abdullah less time , offered a draw.. So Evan finished 3rd, Abdullah 9th..
Table 4: Sumant- Elgin.. after the early setback.. Elgin is back... he will finish top 5 if can win..
but the game was a tame draw.. So sumant finished 6th. Elgin unluckily finished 14th. due to lower tiebreak.
