Malaysian Open 2009 Begins Tomorrow

The 6th Edition of the Dato' Arthur Tan Malaysian Open will start tomorrow morning at 9:00AM. Originally planned for five years from 2004 to 2008, last year should have been the last of the series. Luckily the main sponsor , Dato' Tan Chin Nam has agreed to continue this tournament, hopefully indefinitely :)

The local regulars playing are Lim Yee Weng, Mok Tze Meng and Ismail Ahmad. I have been playing in this event since it started in 2004. After missing last year's event due to work, I will be back this year.

Our IM Mas will not be making an appearance as he is still playing in the BDO Tournament, a 10 player round robin event. His GM quest has to wait for the next tournament. After six rounds he has one win, two draws and three losses.
