2015.12.21-30. Round Robin 11 rounds. 12 players. g/90/30. Rating average 2410. Category VII. IM norms: FM Nguyễn Anh Khô, FM Yeoh Li Tiana, and Yoseph Theolifus Taher.

Very disappointing. That sums up the performance of Indonesian players in the 3rd ASEAN Championship held at Bekasi. The host fielded four players including the Indonesian numero uno, GM Susanto Megaranto. No player was able to achieve more than 50% of VP, let alone won the championship trophies. Yoseph Theolifus Taher, a last minute addition, was the only one who made a notable result. He scored 50% or 5.5 VP, the same VP as IM Muhammad Luthfi Ali’s, which was good enough to register a 10-round IM norm. IM Sean Winshand Cuhendi failed to close the year of 2015 with a happy ending after his triumphs in the National Championship and the prestigious 10th Japfa Festival GMs tournament. Sean, who was expected to get a GM norm, fell deep in the standing table at 10th. He lost thrice in a row in the last 3 rounds. One of his losses was inflicted by the tail ender IM Wynn Zaw Htun of Myanmar.

Unlike Indonesia who had their best player in the arena, Vietnam opted for keeping at home their number 1 and 2 players (GM Lê Quang Liêm and GM Nguyễn Ngọc Trường Sơn). They sent their second string players instead but sufficed to grab the champion and the runner-up spots on behalf of FM Nguyễn Anh Khôi and GM Đào Thiên Hải.

While GM Đào obviously competed for the championship title, unfortunately the same thing couldn’t be said for the other GMs. GM Darwin Laylo Rosales of Philippines got one spot above the cellar. GM Susanto Megaranto presence seemed only to lift the tournament status to a GM level. He drew his first 10 games and lost the last without any single win. He couldn’t help but gave the impression “I don’t want to be here in the first place”.
