2011 Thailand Open

The 2011 Thailand Open is set for an exciting finish with 2 rounds to play. Seven players are within half a point of the lead, with GM's Vellejo Pons and Gustaffson sharing first with 6/7. There is a big Australian contingent taking part, with IM James Morris having a fantastic tournament. He is on an undefeated 5/7, drawing with 3 GM's, beating 2 IM's and performing at 2502. FM Max Illingworth is also performing well and is still in the running for an IM norm. He is slightly short of the required performance, but a win in round 8 would leave him well placed for the norm.
