remarkable games today. Vladimir Nechaj won against Frits Luteijn with a
dirty trick in the opening. The combination was not winning, but Luteijn
insisted in playing bad moves.
N'Diaye won again and he has, with only two rounds to play, a very good
chance to win the tournament, also because Frits Luteijn could not win
against Harry Kolk.

6 rounds Macodou N'Diaye (Senegal) is the leader in Thailand Open 2014. He
made minced meat from Russian player Anton Permyakov. Frits Luteyn (Netherlands)
played a good classic game against Natalia Shestakova (Russia) and won.
Jean-Marc Ndjofang (Cameroon) had only 1 second for 10 moves, but his
opponent Vladimir Nechaj agreed with a draw. We think Ndjofang cannot do
this in his match against Alexander Georgiev later in this year.

Natalia Shestakova won against Jean-Marc Ndjofang. The player from Cameroon had only 6 seconds for 2 moves and missed a combination.
The two African cracks Jean-Marc Ndjofang and Macodou N'diaye didn't make any mistakes and won their games. Nona Savina defeated Leopold Sekongo in a very interesting game.
The tournament started with 60 players. There were no surprising results. Vladimir Nechaj won the prize for the nicest combination.
