NCC 2016 Playoff Round 3

Round 3 results
Lye Lik Zang beat Awang Mohd Syafie
Fong Yit San lost to Kabir Singh
Faizal Andin bye

Lik Zang came back into contention with a win after Awang Mohd Syafie made an incomprehensible error and resigned immediately. At the end, after 23...Nxd5 24 Qxd5+ Kh7 25. h6 will force resignation. He could still save himself after 21... Qe6 22. Qb3 Rd8 23. e4 Nxd4 24.Bxd5 Rxd5 25. Qxd5 Qxd5 26. exd5 Nc2+ 27. Ke2 Nxa1 28. Rxa1 Rxh5
The Women's playoff starts tomorrow between Tan Li Ting and Puteri Rifqah. They are playing for the final spot in the National Squad. The other two that already qualified from the NCC are Nur Nabila and Rosamund Koo.


Both Kabir and Lik Zang have not taken their bye yet so they have only one game left. Theoretically Yit Sand and Faizal Andin can catch up and tie for one or both of the two top spots.
