World Youth U16 Olympiad - Round 9

Malaysia took half point off the strong Russian team thus losing 0.5-3.5.

The draw came from Elgin Lee who drew with FM Terentjev. The rest, Li Tian, JianWen and Eng Chiam all lost to their higher rated opponents.

Malaysia is now sharing the 11-14th place. Russia takes back the lead when Armenia suffered a shock defeat of 1.5-2.5 to Kazakhstan. With only one more round to go, Russia now leads Armenia with 1.5 points and looks likely to take the gold.

Malaysia will meet Moldova in the final round today which will start earlier than usual at 10:00 AM (3:00 PM in Malaysia). I expect our boys to win this match. A big win could then place them within  the top 10.
