In the Challengers, two of the former co-leaders, Hans Niemann and Vincent Keymer won in round 9 and finished tied for first place. Curiously, they were also tied in all the tiebreak criteria. The organizers decided to stage a 2-game blitz match, which Keymer won by a 2-0 score. | Pictured: Le Quang Liem (2nd), Pentala Harikrishna (1st) and Thai Dai Van Nguyen (3rd) | Photo: Vladimír Jagr
