Beside the hall is the Main Library. Players had the chance to visit the Library between rounds

A closer look at it.

Inside the tournament hall. It was the coldest hall i have ever been to. The players who had brought their jackets and coats along had the advantage.

Before the round San jeevwa (right)and Tan Khai Boon (both from penang) playing friendly matches. It was a great achievement for Sanjeevwa (18 years) who managed to find his way to UTP.
