The First ASEAN Championship, exclusively for ASEAN chess player kick off on Boxing Day 2010. Five More Vietnam woman chess players storming the upper standing on Day 3/Round 6, all elo range from 2200 to 2300+. Indeed the Vietnamese are of a large crowd in this tournament. The tournament top seed however, WGM Irene K. Sukandar, stays on 3.5/6 point. Irene lost to WIM Nguyen Thi Mai Hung 2253 in round six, put her now on difficult task to finish within prize position. The current standing after round 6 :

In the main  or "men" tournament, GM Zurab Asmaiparashvili come out as a surprise participant. The super GM has a close relation to Singapore Chess Federation and perhaps playing as special invitee as GM Le Quang Liem seems to absent from this tournament.
