It will be interesting to see Duc Hoa battle it out with last year's champ 'Bong' Villamayor. Villamayor had a set back when he lost to untitled Vietnamese Tran Ngoc Lan in the second round. However Bong bounced back winning his last 3 games in a row (no GM draws for this guy!) to set up this last round show down.

Lot's of 6 pointers and I hope they fight it out instead for going for quick calculated draws.
