So Beats Indon, 4-2

GM Wesley So was victorious over GM Susanto Megaranto with a score of four points to 2 in their match in the JAPFA Festival in Jakarta. The now RP numero uno blitzed his Indon rival three-love in the first 3 games before Susanto managed to stave off a looming whitewash with a draw in the fourth. But by then, of course, it was too late.

The Indonesian followed-up with a nice win in the fifth while handling the black side of a Nimzovitch Defense. He won in 28. The sixth game ended a draw, a 67-mover Sicilian duel, their longest game in the event.
