1st Berjaya Times Square IT Centre Juniors Open: Under-16 Result

Giant Killer Wo Chang Xi created a series of upset to win the U16 title unexpectedly. He started his campaign by defeating top ranked Tan Yong Zhao, followed by 5th ranked Liew Ashton and 3rd ranked Bausch Koh in next two rounds. He has a great escape in his Rd 4 encounter with Lee Kang Jing where he has a lost game but his opponent did him a great favour by touching the King to allow him a pawn promotion for a draw. In Round 5, his fine run came to a halt when Vinton defeated him. The title seems to be out of reach despite if he scores a win in last round because two other higher boards must end with Vinton losing to lower ranked player and Soon Heng cannot win Yong Zhao. What are the probability for it to happen? As the clocks tick away, Vinton lost, then Soon Heng drew, and now all he needs is to defeat his opponent.

The result as below:-

Congratulation to all winners!!!!
