In Round 2, Meng Kong lost a hard fought game against GM Mark Paragua.
I feel that Meng Kong's subtle play with the minority attack against Malaysian junior Fong Yit San is worth showing here.
I've learnt about another prodigy (apart from 9 year old FM Ram - see the notes to the Fong YS - WMK game) 14-year-old Indonesian Jodi Setyaki Azarya from NM Olimpiu Urcan's website. Jodi had led th the tournament after Round 6 together with GM Tiviakov before the GM outplayed him in Round 7. It's alarming how fast these kids are improving indeed.
Now, the tournament is into Round 8 and the KL Open ends tomorrow.
