Sharing third to eight places on 4.5/6 are Gomez, M.R. Venkatesh and Nguyen And Dung who drew each other, Niaz Murshed and Richard Bitoon who also drew each other, and Nguyen Van Huy who joins them after an easy win over Mari Joseph Turqueza.

Two young players who are impressing are 17 year old WGM Medina Warda Aulia and 15 year old FM Aravindh Chithambaram and are showing they easily belong amongst the group on 4/6. Both are unbeaten despite playing numerous grandmasters and are in contention for the International Master title norm.
