Aron, Yee Weng and Mas Lead with One Round to Play

With one round to go, Aron Teh, Lim Yee Weng and Mas Hafizulhelmi continue to share the lead on 5.5/8 in a hard fought event.

Aron is certainly with the best chance as he plays the off form Dr Ronnie Lim while Yee Weng and Mas play each other and Lim Zhouren who is on 5/8 and half a point behind will be hoping to win his last round and benefit from any slip up by the leaders.

It is clear that veteran Jimmy Liew will be last - sometimes your age just catches up with you - and it will be interesting if Roshan Singh who plays Fong Yit San can keep his eighth place and qualify for the National Team as the seven players ahead of him, assuming no withdrawals due to work or other priorities/commitments, have already booked their places.

Once the national team is formed players would be required to commit to being available for international representation and to play and train regularly as in other sports and in line with what is expected from the Minstry of Sport, National Sports Council and Olympic Council of Malaysia.

It will certainly be a tense and exciting afternoon/evening for the very best players we have available and playing today!
