We move the attention away from the National Premier to the Candidates where veteran masters IM Domingo Ramos and FM Chia Chee Seng remain unbeaten so far.

 FM Chia Chee Seng vs Iskandar Abdullah (1/2-1/2), IM Domingo Ramos vs Tan Weiliang (1/2-1/2). In the background is WIM Gong Qianyun who is scything down the field in the National Ladies.

57 year old FM Chia is currently leading the pack with 4/6 having beaten both Tan Weiliang and Iskandar Abdullah 1.5-0.5.
