Malaysian Masters: Li Tian wins

Yeoh Li Tian has won the 2014 Malaysian Masters with a round to spare. He beat his nearest rival, Ng Tze Han, yesterday afternoon to post a 4/4 score. The other two games were drawn. This means Li Tian has a 1.5 points lead over the rest of the field.

Tze Han and Ahmad Fadzil remains in the second place with 2.5 points each. Last year's joint winner, Aron Teh has 2 points and still has a theoretical chance to take one of the three spots for this year's olympiad team. For this to happen he must win over Sumant today and hope that there is a decisive result in the Tze Han - Ahmad Fadzil game. Unfortunately for him, it is more likely that the two will agree a draw to protect their placing. There could be a three way tie for 2nd-3rd placing.

Questions - Why is there another selection to cater for Yee Weng? Couldn't have Yee Weng played in the Malaysian Masters? Why waste time on another round robin?

Good question. I posed this same question to an mcf official last night. I was not satisfied with his answers
