Yeoh Li Tian in Zonal

Our sole Malaysian representative in the Zone 3.3 championship is young Yeoh Li Tian. He is seeded 26th in a field of forty players. This is a very strong tournament with 11 GMs, 7 IMs and 7 FMs. The first seed is GM Wesley So who flew back from US where he is studying. The tournament is allocated two seats in the next World Cup.

Li Tian plays Filipino GM John Paul Gomez in the first round which will have started as I write this.
