Today, GM Wang Hao, of China, became the new Malaysian Open champion with a round to spare. After 10 rounds, he is on 9 points - an awesome display of power that included victories over my compatriots Gonzales, Mariano and Torre.
The Aussie, GM Rogers, is on 7.5 points. I must reluctantly report that Rogers defeated Torre in round 10. Rogers will now cross swords with Wang Hao in the final round. C'mon Aussie!
