Heading for Malaysia

A horde of Australian players are off to Malaysia to play in the 2011 Malaysian Chess Festival. The 8th Dato' Arthur Tan Malaysian Open Chess Championship begins on the 17th August, as does the Ambank Challengers. At the completion of these events the very popular Medeka Teams Championship will be held on the 27th & 28th of August.
In the DATMO at least 16 GM's have already entered, which is a pretty good number for a field of 96 players. The number could have been increased by one, but Uzbek GM Dmitry Kayumov has decided to play in the concurrent Seniors event (as have FM Brian Jones and Paul Spiller).
I'm not sure what coverage of the event is on offer, but the tournament web page should at least have results.
