IA draws IM !

A surprise result from the first round of KL Open 2009. Najib (that's DATMO 2009 Chief Arbiter not the PM!) drew against IM Gokhale of India. Although Gokhale is only rated at 2284, it can be considered an upset for him.

Let's not forget Najib started playing chess first before going into organising and arbitering. He might even end up as the best performing Malaysian, seeing how few Malaysians are actually in the tournament. Unfortunately there is no prize for that, unlike in the DATMO.
