After Round 8: Duc Hoa leads
With many of the top boards in Round 8 ending in draws, GM Nguyen Duc Hoa and GM Richard Bitoon was a fiercely fought affair and lasted almost 4 hours. Duc Hoa was rewarded with a win propelling him as leader going into to the final round.
Duc Hoa will meet GM 'Bong' Villamayor, last year's Penang Open Champion on board one today in round 9 starting at 9am. Since Duc Hoa only has a narrow lead of half a point, anything can happen in the final round. Catch the top boards live on http://broadcast.kedaicatur.com !
