Round 28 Auto-Commentary

Nigel Richards (NZL) remains in the lead for the 9th consecutive round, 23-5 +2248. Panupol Sujjayakorn (THA) is 3.5 games behind at 19.5-8.5 +1508, #2 climbing from #3. Jakkrit Klaphajone (THA) is 4 games behind the leader at 19-9 +913, #3 rising from #5. Ming Hui Hubert Wee (SGP) is +797, on a 5-game winning streak, #4 climbing from #6. Worasit Suksansumran (THA) is +514, #5 falling from #2.

In Class S: Bob Jackman (AUS) is the lead, 17-11 +815. Tony Sim (SGP) is 3 games behind at 14-14 +425, #32 tumbling from #26. Karen Richards (AUS) is +340, #34 tumbling from #25. Rodney Talbot (AUS) is -231, #39 jumping up from #45. Ron Baginski (AUS) is -532, #42 jumping down from #37. Jin Chor Tan (MYS) is 4 games behind the leader at 13-15 +133, #44 jumping down from #39. Paul Richards (AUS) is -373, #49 down from #44.

High Win: Goutham Jayaraman (IND) 556-404 vs. Charae Worapotpisut (THA). Low Win: Maneeda Tanasanvimol (THA) 332-329 vs. Christine Cartman (Eng). High Loss: Warodom Geamsakul (THA) 428-513 vs. Somphong Phosai (THA). Low Loss: Jessie Lim (SGP) 293-401 vs. Thanatchaporn Thiankarojanakul (THA).

If I read Ming Hui Hubert Wee's (SGP) scoresheet handwriting correctly, he appears to have replied to Bob Jackman's (AUS) 15b FORESAID with a11 DOWNA hooking A-FORESAID for a large number of points.

Nigel gone out for a long lunch, after confirming with me that I will not put him back in the pairings even if Worasit Suksansumran (THA) beats Panupol Sujjayakorn (THA) at Board 1.

Panupol needs to go at least 1.5-0.5 in the next two games. If Worasit wins this game, Panupol will move down to Board 2 and Worasit plays the winner of Komol Panyasophonlert (THA) vs. Jakkrit Klaphajone (THA). If Worasit ties, he likely plays Panupol again, unless Jakkrit has a big win. If Worasit loses, he drops down to Board 2 himself, and Board 1 sees Panupol playing either Komol or Jakkrit.

Panupol beats Worasit 412-390. Jakkrit beats Komol 415-409.

Board 1 will feature Panupol vs. Jakkrit, Board 2 Ming Hui Hubert Wee (SGP) vs. Worasit.
