Is there something wrong with the pairings at the Zonal?


An anonymous comment highlighted this to me. It was also asserted that the player paired against Li Tian is a chess teacher in Malaysia. I have no knowledge if this assertion is true or not but I hope that both Fide and MCF can look into this. None of us can act on suspicion alone except those authorities. All we can do is to point out what we think may be irregularities and present it as circumstantial evidence. I hope there will be an investigation at least to clear the air. Can there be Malaysian pride if there is suspicion of our success? I know all Malaysian chess lovers will cheer our heros if we believe they have won in a fair fight.
