Hou Yifan Wins in KL

Sixteen year old grandmaster Hou Yifan prevailed in the KL open with a score of 7.5 points from nine games. She was undefeated throughout the event. Vietnamese grandmaster A.N. Dung and GM Mikheil Mchedlishvili settled for equal second place with 7 points apiece.

IM Aleks Wohl never really recovered from his earlier mishaps and only, in fact, managed to post two further losses later in the tournament. He finished with 50 percent score. Still, IM Wohl did a bit better than the two Kiwis in the event, Vivian and Robert Smith, who scored 3.5 and four points respectively
