24 April 2012, Kuala Lumpur - In Melaka, the first round of the Melaka International Open Chess Championship 2012 had taken place yesterday with 36 players participating. Most of the favorites won.
None of the Malaysians won except for two. IM MAS Hafizulhelmi and Yeoh Li Tian.
Yeoh Li Tian will meet IM Dimakiling Oliver of the Philippines in round two. Meanwhile IM MAS will meet GM Deepan Chakkarvarthy of India. We wish them luck as these are opportunities for them to gain norms and make progress up the ladder of success.
