Seems That The Non Chessplayers Won In Singapore!

Dr Hsu Li Yang was in his time a strong International Master and national champion who still plays the occasional game for fun and attended the EOGM as a neutral but was so shocked at what transpired that he was moved to write about it in his blog (https://miphidic.wordpress.com/2016/01/29/scf-eogm-chess/?fb_action_ids=940994475986112&fb_action_types=news.publishes)
