About a week ago, under the backdrop of tall buildings that shaped the skyline, smells of pollutant,city air and sounds of rushing traffic that is Kuala Lumpur...Roshan beats Li Tian in round 4 of National Closed in an exciting game and went on to be a National Champion.

Tomorrow...about 444 kilometres away from the place of their historic duel mentioned above...also in round 4...they meet again under the backdrop of tall coconut trees that shaped the skyline, smells of salty air and sounds of rushing China Selatan waves that is Kuala Terengganu...Roshan and Li Tian meet again in most anticipated 2012 MSSM encounter.

Both of them are arguably the most excited junior players at MSSM (and you too, Jianwen and few others) is current National Master and most improved player while the other is considered to be the best junior player and a GM beater no less...and the fact that they met in under 15 group instead of the ‘stronger’ under 18 group reminds me of Manny Pacquaio and Floyd Mayweather...two most excited welterweight boxers that world follows avidly (thought Pacman and Mayweather has never fight with each other inside the ring)...better than those in Heavyweight category.

So will Li Tian, this time around, able to tame Roshan ‘The Lion’ in the land of may follow this game live from Arshad’s new website .
