Malaysians Title Norm Update at JAPFA 3rd ASEAN Championships After Round 5

Li Tian has come through a a day where he met two grandmasters and remains unbeaten with +2 when he needs  +1 to make his first International Master title norm. Of course he wins or finishes in a tie for first (up to three players), he then becomes Malaysia's International Master.


Nabila is also unbeaten and while a point behind the two leaders and half a point behind two others, she is still on track for a Woman International Master title norm.
