42nd Selangor Open: Last Day

After a gruelling 7 rounds battle, defending champion IM Nolte, Rolando has taken a half point lead over his nearest rival IM Mas. Bearing upset, Rolando may seal the title if he beats his compatriot Senador in this round. He had played IM Mas and FM Yeoh already.

Meanwhile, IM Jimmy from Selangor ( a 8-time winner who won his first back in 1980) has staged a remarkable comeback after dropping 1.5pts in his first 3 games and currently playing on Board 4 against the most impressive junior player in this edition. A win in this round may see him playing Rolando in the next and final round. If it happens, this mouth watering clash will be the highlight of the tournament. Only he can stop Rolando from winning the title for the 3rd time in 4 years.
