No Surprise At The Worst Ever Performance By A Malaysian Team
I call them the backdoor boys - but they even dared to call themselves Olympians, the top five players in Malaysia and to talk about their fans!
Yes, it was the worst performance in living memory by a Malaysian team and in stark contrast to our superb girls who did fantastically well with the best Malaysian performance ever!
Only those who actually qualified to be in the team did well - congratulations is due to Sumant Subramaniam for a performance that earned him the FIDE Master title.
Not bad either for International Master Jimmy Liew who cleverly played down the order and proved at his age that even with an extended run he can still play at 2200 level.
