Malaysia beats Moldova 2.5-1.5

Malaysia has just beaten Moldova 2.5-1.5. The individual scores -

Wong JianWen lost Iovcov Valerii
Yeoh Li Tian bt Abramciuc Marius
Yeap Eng Chiam drew Gorbanovsky Oleg
Roshan Singh bt Procop Egor

Roshan has more to celebrate as he also won the bronze medal on the reserve board. This was an added bonus as he was quite far down the standings at the mid-point. However I think he won his last three games so it is a deserving one.

We were quite lucky in this round. Li Tian was lost in a double rook ending until his opponent blundered away a full rook.

We have to wait for the full results but according to my observations this result means that Malaysia have a chance to be in the top ten though it is likely there will be a tie. Well done, Malaysia.
