Despite being held to a draw in round 1 by lower rated CM Ahmad Fadil Nayan in round 1 and losing to GM Shyam Sundar in round 5, top seed GM Zhang Zhong filled the rest of his results with wins to claw his way back to top spot. The final round he met Chinese GM Zhao Jianchao and had to win as a draw will result him losing the championship on tie break due to his low tiebreak points. And win he did! GM Zhang Zhong is the 11th Malaysia Open Champion.
