Second game in progress

Mok Tze Meng - Ooi Chern Ee
Malaysian Masters 2009 (Quarter-Final)

1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 4.Bxd7+ Qxd7 5.c4

Mok almost only plays this variation, so it should not come as a surprise to Ooi.

5...Nc6 6. Nc3 g6 7.0-0 Bg7 8.a3 Nf6 9.Rb1 0-0 10. b4 Ng4 11. Ne2

Black went into a long think. White's quiet setup is designed to defuse Black's counter chances in the Sicilian. Mok clearly does not intend to rush things, he dont mind a draw to finish the day with a point ahead.

11...Nge5 12. Nxe5 dxe5 13. d3 Rfd8 14. Rb3
