    The first day of the Merdeka Teams Rapid event was held today with 104 teams(!) in the Open as well as a high number of teams in the Under 12 event taking part. On top of Brian's list above, Brodie McClymont, Aleks Wohl and David Liu are all playing with a Phillipino on the Doubleroo team. Also we discovered this morning that only four players are allowed per team (not five as in previous years) so Brian Jones is playing for a different team (DATCC) too.

    All results and pairings can be found here: http://chess-results.com/tnr187627.a...det=YES&wi=821 . I'm sure we are all looking forward to another 6 rounds of rapid tomorrow starting at 8:30am followed by a blitz event for the super keen players (like myself!)

    Can he get a GM norm off the tournament?

    The hardest part is to get 2 GMs in the last 3 games. If Anton is lucky to get 2 more GMs and scores at least 2.5 in the last 4 rounds then I would say he has very good chances.

    There is only one GM on 4, Nguyen Duc Hoa. Everybody else is on 3.5 or less. Unless one of the GMs on 3.5 starts winning chances are pretty low.

    P.S. It actually shows how hard it is to get a GM norm in our part of the world. It is possible that a player gets 9 out of 9 in the event like Malaysian Open and still no norm.

    Molton and Anton are 1st equal after 9 rounds.

    Anton missed a GM norm by 1 GM and 0.5 rating point. He only played 2 GMs rather than 3 as required and his average is 2379, while 2379.5 is the minimum allowed. In some sense it is good that he only had 2 GMs. If he had 3 and missed out by 0.5 point that would be very unfortunate...

    If he played a 3rd GM then I doubt he would've been under the rating minimum

    When Alex shared this on Facebook, several other chess-players also pointed out that such cheating is very common in Malaysian blitz events and the arbiters do little to ractify the problem.

    Correct. I know of one high rated Victorian IM who apparently has been subjected to such unacceptable behaviour.
    I did not refer to specific names out of respect for the involved individuals' right to present their case themselves if they so wish.
    I provided the source for general discussion here!

    "Illegal move, like moving King next to King was tried on at least three occasions that I am aware of. In the first case the person losing moved his king into check and when the opponent failed to notice, the first player claimed the game."

    Interesting for Aleks to mention this, as I can recall a rather crucial game in a national blitz which he won in exactly this fashion.

    A certain International Master that I will not name (Not Alex) has been attempting illegal moves on several occasions at national blitz events ...including in the national championships play-off one year...
