Hong Kong Open Chess Round 3

September 18th, 2012

Last Monday in round 3 Seth Levine and Chun Keung Yeung agreed to a draw. Billy Lo and David Garceran Nieuwenburg had played their game on Saturday already, which also resulted in a draw, and with Sydney Sai Ling Wai winning his game against Brian Shin the top five players now all share 2.5 points.

Closely following with 2 points are five players, of which Alberto Pardino Muniz and Luen-Wah Luk stand out a bit. Alberto only played two games and Luen-Wah remains unbeaten with a win and 2 draws, the last draw against Jake Chi Loon Chan who with this excellent result scored 1.5 points and is, for now, just out of the top 10.

In the second half of the league we see that Peter Whalley, Hysan Lai Hei Wong and Jefferson Lee scored their first win and definitely more is to come, also from Scott Ian who returned from the Chess Olympiads in Turkey (representing Hong Kong) seemingly well warmed up to score a full point in his first game in round 3.
