Bangkok Open

The Bangkok Open was the third tournament in the Doeberl/SIO/Bangkok series of international events, although the large traveling distance between Australia and Thailand meant that it was unlikely to have more than a few players in common. The winner of the O2C Doeberl Cup Varuzhan Akobian is playing, although Rogelio Antonio, who was going to play, failed to show.
After 4 rounds the lead is shared between Xiu Deshun (CHN) and Li Shilong (CHN) on 4/4. Akobian is on 3.5 along with 2 others. 23 Countries are represented with 17 players from Thailand, 17 from Malaysia, and 9 each from China and Hong Kong.
