Result Macau Asian Indoor Games 2007

I've just received the results of Malaysian players at Macau Asian Indoor Games 2007 from Team Manager, Haslindah Ruslan.

Round 1 of Rapid Chess started today at 9am - 10am : Malaysia vs Maldives
Our IM Mas won his game, FM Anas drew, while IWM Siti and NWM Syazawani got themselves a bye. The total score for first round = 3.5 points. Good points for a start!

Round 2 of Rapid Chess at 10.30 - 11.30am : Indonesia vs Malaysia.
IM Mas lost to GM Susanto Megaranto, FM Anas lost to IM Irwanto, IWM Siti lost to Irene Kharisma and NWM Syazwani drew with Evi Lindiawati. Total score for round 2 is 3.5 - 0.5 points.

Total Point so far after 2 rounds for Malaysia is 4 points.

I do hope Malaysia can gain more points in the coming more rounds to go, because I still believe there is still room for improvements. Good luck!

Round 3 will start at 2.30-3.30pm : Malaysia vs Philippines.
IM Mas will play against GM Rogelio Antonio, FM Anas vs Rolando Nolte, WIM Siti vs Perena and NWM Syazwani will play Sherie Cua.

Hope they can gain points from this one. Based on the line up, Philippines is a strong contender, but maybe the ladies can secure full points.

More result will be posted soonest!
