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.

The Tournament Hall at SCUA (Sekolah Catur Utut Adianto) in Bekasi, Jakarta
Chess is a family affair... even amongst the VIP guests on formal occasions
National Anthems are however a serious matter

All participants on stage for the obligatory group photo but this time with a big cheer!
