Nor Azmi is a slow starter. It can say luck if U play him in the early round b'coz chances for U to win is bigger. His performance in this event wasn't so convincing but nevertheless he managed to bounce back after outplayed by Fairul in the 2nd round. This was his back-to-back defeat to Fairul. Experience is his strength.

If I to pick Man-of-the-match in this event, it'll goes to Hashim Jusoh. Albeit losing to Nor Azmi in the final round he consistently showed some accurate play throughout the games. Hashim is a player who could do magic in the dying minutes. His composure is great.

Fairul still to be a dark horse. This time Kadir spoiled his way to be a champ and his reluctant to play against Suhaidi in the final round didn't do him any good, at least finished at 2nd spot.
