Round 5 Malaysia loses to Bolivia???

We can draw with Lithuania who fielded three grandmasters and one international master. But we can lose to Bolivia?

I'm trying to think of a worse upset in our history of participating in the olympiads. I cannot think of one. I think this is it.

So what next? Shrug it off. There is another six rounds to go. And tomorrow is another day.

For the Men's Olympiad, do all players have to play in all rounds? man, this is very tiring!!

They can rest if they have a reserve player

Problem is I dont think they trust the reserve to be able to play
