Asian Continental Championship 2010

The current focus is on the World Championship match between Anand and Topalov. Another event closer to home has gone under the radar. This is the Asian Continental Championship currently in progress in Subic, Philippines.

Malaysia is not represented while resident GM Ziaur Rahman is playing under Bangladesh flag.

Philippines boy prodigy Wesley So is leading at the half-way point after five rounds with four and half points.

Top seed Le Quang Liem, recent winner of the Aeroflot Open, is finding the going tough and only scored three points. He lost the first round against a much lower rated player.
