Early & Confirmed Grandmaster Entries


Our early Grandmaster entries were Sergei Tiviakov and Thomas Luther and now with July coming to a close and national teams to the World Chess Olympiad finalised, they are joined by some old friends of KL Chess, Oliver Barbosa, Tahir Vakhidov, Nguyen Ang Dung and Dr. Wong Meng Kong.

Together with numerous IM entries, the foreign numbers are now closing on to 40 and with a total of 10 Malaysians also having confirmed, there are officially only 30 places left but that does not include provisional entries by a few other GMs and the players promised by the national chess federations of the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam.
