Based on feedback received, I have checked out the chess-results.com website for the first round results in the 2nd Dragon Capital Vietnam Chess Open tournament in Vietnam. IM Mas Hafizulhelmi and IM Lim Yee Weng are participating. There are 38 players participating from India, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa and Vietnam.
The ranking crosstable after Round 1 shows that IM Mas has won by beating WIM Le Kieu Thien Kim, Vietnam (2221) and IM Lim Yee-Weng lost to a local Vietnamese player, Dang Hoang Son (2082).
Let’s hope our two Malaysian players will fare better in future rounds. The tournament runs from the 3rd December 2009 to the 8th December 2009. By next Tuesday, we shall soon know their fate and their final performance in the tournament.
