Seniors 65 & Seniors 50 at ASEAN+ Age-Group Championships
Jun 12, 2015
While there has long been a category for Seniors in the ASEAN+ Age-Group Championships, this year it has been aligned to FIDE competition and is now played as Seniors 65+ and Seniors 50+.
There are seven entries in Seniors 65+ and it is played as a seven round robin or six games with a very welcome bye while there are sixteen entries in Seniors 50+.
After 5 rounds In Seniors 65+, Vietnamese Le Tien Vi and Luu Duc Hai are joined on 3,5 by Filipino Milagrosa Alexander although there are really two leaders as Luu has played one game more.
In Seniors 50+, Myanmar’s Khin Ko is on fire as he leads by a point with 4.5/5 over Singaporeans IM Chan Peng Kong and Wong Ngiam Yee and Indonesian Guntoro Sugianto.
