Is Vietnam the "future" China when it comes to chess?  Stay tuned...  For my part, my eyes remain on WGM Irine Kharisma Sukandar, who should be playing in more mixed events and against male players in order to build her relative strength.  Do culture and religion play a role in preventing this from taking place, or is it just a matter of no financing to allow it to take place???

Just a note - as far as I could tell, not being familiar with the names of 99.9% of the players, all of the players in the "Open" were male.
