5th National Junior fifth round starts

The fifth round will have just started this morning. In the boys event, Mark Siew is leading with perfect 4/4. He beat Liew Ken Yew yesterday afternoon. Fong Yit San could only manage to draw with Tan Jun Feng.

The fifth round pairing is crucial for the championship. Mark will play Yit Sand and a win for the former virtually seals the championship for him.

There was a big shock in the girls section. Nur Nabila lost two games in a row, first to Nithyalakshmi  Sivanesan and later to team-mate Tan Li Ting. Three players lead going into the fifth round. Nithyalakshmi  Sivanesan, Nur Najiha and Tan Li Ting.

Najiha plays Li Ting and this will be another crucial battle for the first place. Read more at Najib's blog here.
