15 July 2010, Kuala Lumpur – Tonight there were quite a few surprises for the Thursday night simultaneous against the GM Ziaur Rahman. Yeoh Li Tian sprang the first surprise by beating the GM Ziaur Rahman, fair and square. Nor Ilhamuddin drew his game, meanwhile Yeoh Chin Seng and Ng6 lost their games.
In the last board, Yeap Eng Chiam lost on time to the GM Ziaur but the GM Ziaur sportingly gave Yeap Eng Chiam an additional 15 minutes and Eng Chiam surprisingly won his game against the Malaysian-resident GM.
Quite a mixed night for the GM for tonight!
