Paragua in Sole Lead

GM Paragua beat IM Wynn Zaw Htun today to take the solo lead in the Zone 3.3 tournament in Malaysia. He is now on 6 points, ahead of two chasers, Adianto and Wong Meng-Kong who are on 5.5 points.

The all-Pinoy contest Torre-Antonio was a win for the White player. And on board 7, Mariano lost out to GM Wu Shaobin. On board 8, Gonzales settled for a draw against Ly Hong Nguyen. Gonzales will now need to wait for another tournament to earn his final GM norm.

Full table here.

Paragua slows down with a draw in the 8th round but his closest rivals also drew!!

So he is still the leader going into the final round tomorrow. He just needs a draw..
