Penang heritage city international chess open tournament 2009 (Part 2)

How do you like the name of the tournament? There is a nice ring to it, taking advantage of the fact that George Town is on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list.

I only managed to arrive at the Dewan Sri Pinang late yesterday evening, so most of the games in the fourth round had already finished. I missed seeing Mas Hafizulhelmi and Mok Tze Meng battled out to a draw; I missed seeing Gerhard Schebler beat Mohd Fadli Zakaria, and I missed a great many games too, especially the monumental fight between Schebler and Lim Chuin Hoong in the morning's third round. But these photographs captured some of the activities:

I hear this boy's from Kulim. He played an interesting endgame against Syed Iskandar Shah, shoved his pawn all the way to the seventh round and tied his opponent down.

Two long, long games in one day. Luckily here, he won his game against Singapore's Johnharry Pereira.
