Yeoh Li Tian on fire!

That’s the first image that came to mind looking at Li Tian’s incredible performance at the on going 2017 Zone 3.3 Championship (Open).

No need to rehash what other’s been posting in Facebook and other blogs but in case you were left out, this is a strong tourney consisting of 9 Grandmasters and 10 International Masters. As of the time of writing, Li Tian is still the leader of the tournament after 7 rounds and is unbeaten. Strong players scalped by Li Tian include GM Antonio Rogelio, IM Oliver Dimakiling and Liu Xiang Yi.
