Round 8 Hong Kong Finals: Bryan Lee One Point Loose

May 2nd, 2012

Arthas Qian‘s loss against Cheuk Wai Lo amplified the effects of Bryan ┬áLee‘s win against Ian Scott in the rankings. Bryan with, an excellent undefeated 7 out of 8, has broken loose now one full point from Hong Ki Tsang, who could cash in a point against David Garceran Nieuwenburg, who might be record holder now in blundering a piece away in a good position in the end phases of the game. Lack of concentration?

Although round 10 could turn into a decisive round when Bryan and Hong Ki meet, with 5.5 out of 7 Chor Yuen Chong is still a force to reckon and both Andrew Koenigsberg and Arthas are not to be counted out yet either.
