Pic left : Table 8 : GM Susanto Megaranto (INA) - 2534, with 4 points vs Rustum Tolentino (PHI) - 2362 also with 4 points : result 1-0
it looks like Megaranto is making his mark as a GM in this tourney after a poor start in earlier rounds.

Pic right : Table 1 : GM Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son (VIE) - 2592 with 5 points vs GM Negi Parimarjan (IND) - 2590 also with 5 points. Result : draw
