UPSI is tough

It was a difficult tournament as one of the participant in UPSI remarked.

Because of the 126 players taking part, the organisers decided to increase the number of rounds from 7 to 8. Also, several mistakes made in the initial pairings as well as last minute entries delayed the first round to around 12 pm yesterday. After that each of the round had to be reduced from 1 hour to 45 minute per player. 5 rounds were played on the first day so the last game for Round 5 ended about 10pm!

Today there is only 3 rounds and the time control goes back to its original 1 hour.

Prize giving ceremony is expected to be at 5 pm.

Here is a clearer picture of the Round 8 pairings:-
