World Youth U16 Olympiad

Malaysia's representatives are Wong JianWen, Yeoh Li Tian, Elgin Lee, Yeap Eng Chiam and Roshan Singh. This is also the board order. The team left early Sunday (23rd October) morning. They had to play the first round the very next day.

In round one we were paired with the South African "B" team. On first board, JianWen lost his game but Li Tian, Elgin and Eng Chiam all won to give Malaysia a 3-1 win.

Most of the time the top board will have very difficult task and it seems no different here. The next round tonight will see our boys meeting India who have an IM on first board. However I believe our boys can pull off some upsets on the other boards. My guess is that Li Tian and Eng Chiam will score points for the team in round two. Hopefully JianWen and Elgin can hold against their opponents.
