GM Anton Fillipov Won KL Open 2008 !


Uzbek GM - Filippov Anton (FIDE 2543) won the 2008 KL Open after finishing with 7 points from 9 rounds. He tied with Chinese IM Wang Rui who has the same points but Filippov (photo left) have a better tie break to claim the trophy.

Congratulation for Filippov for winning the tournament but...i hope..he would improve his HANDWRITING..because i found that it's almost impossible to read his score sheet!

The prize giving ceremonies will be held tomorrow at the Legend Hotel , Kuala Lumpur.






Game between IM Wang Rui and eventual winner GM Anto Fillipov in the earlier rounds. Anton held on hoping for a win but the game was drawn. Wang Rui looked at Anton expecting a draw acknowledgement but Anton played one more move before giving in to the draw.
