Impressive start for Li Tian

Youngster Yeoh Li Tian got off an impressive start in the first four rounds of the 3rd KL Open. He has one win and three draws for 2.5 points.

What is amazing is that this is achieved against 2300+ opposition with one GM and one IM. His average opponent's rating is 2381. However we should not expect too much from the boy. I observed that his game is still very raw, it is not easy to beat him but he will find it difficult to play for win from the opening.

He should be fine if he stays below board ten, above that there are the "big boys" whom he cannot match at this point.

Li Tian faces another IM rated 2403 this afternoon.
